My source is Countodwn with Keith Oberman (MSNBC) from tonight's episode on September 8th, 2005.
Right now I'm relying on word of mouth (text transcript currently not available)
According to Keith and the reporter he was talking to, the Astrodome is going to be shut down on September 18th (the first home game of the Houston Texans).
Mr. Oberman said something along these lines: Nice to know that our priorities are in order. Football, then the 8000 folks still inside the Astrodome.
