A few days ago, TV viewers of the Atlanta-based Weather Channel missed the live implosion of the Georgia Dome when a city bus blocked the channel's camera position during the whole event. The video has gone viral. In Atlantic City, it apparently takes a billionaire to block the implosion of another redundant, unwanted, but iconic building. He's Tropicana and former Taj Mahal owner Carl Icahn, who also owns the empty Trump Plaza, the ex-casino-hotel with the fantastic location smack in the middle of the city. Now that great minds all think that the Trump Plaza should be blown up, Icahn wants a semi-public fund to pay for about half of the explosives. So far, the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority agrees with him. The CRDA staff has decided that the pursuit qualifies Icahn to receive $5.6 million of the estimated $13.2 million demolition cost, although a formal vote on the request will occur later. Icahn's gall probably has no peer, not even Donald J. Trump's, although there could be reasons for the CRDA board to hold its collective nose and issue the big check. About a month ago, we opined here that a complete tear-down of the Trump Plaza was a golden, never-again opportunity to link the Boardwalk casinos district with The Walk, the popular outlet district. The new gateway would be good for both Atlantic City's retail and gambling areas, offering the ability for visitors to walk between them, not to mention supplying gorgeous oceanfront vistas that millions could view. This includes many who arrive in A.C. by car, since the Trump Plaza sits at the end of the Atlantic City Expressway. It would even be OK, we said earlier, if the CRDA or another public agency were to fund part of the conversion of the hotel site into a big chunk of open space. So, on that score, the CRDA's preliminary finding makes sense. But the authority needs to know what Icahn plans for the site before it advances him a nickel. He (or, technically, his Trump Entertainment Resorts company) still owns the property, but he hasn't tipped his hand about what he wants to replace the Trump Plaza. If the site were to remain vacant for the most part, and equipped with nicely landscaped walkways,
