OK, I might be a little out of touch here. I read somewhere in the Forum about the renovations MIA is having. I did now they were happening. But, last time I checked on Miami fiscal condition, they had just come from the brink of bankrupcy. Where the hell are they getting 5.2 billion dollars from? The county? It can't possibly be the city, they can't build a new school down there.
Also, when is the new runway supposed to open? It doesn't say anything about that in their website.
