HOW THE MIGHTY HAVE FALLEN: NBC's Brian Williams noted the National Trust For Historic Preservation has placed the Astrodome on its most recent list of the "most endangered places" in the U.S. The stadium has been "abandoned for years," and a "buyer and a new life of some sort." is being sought. Williams: "It's now dilapidated and unsafe, with pieces falling down, the seats rotting and the Astroturf now looking like an old, worn, torn-up green carpeting that it now is" ("Nightly News," NBC, 6/19).
