Millennium Dome

NPR's Julie McCarthy reports from London that the British government is facing mounting calls to shut down the Millennium Dome exhibition hall. The Dome's managing commissioners sparked outrage last night when they approved another emergency infusion of cash for the attraction, which cost hundreds of millions of dollars to put up. The constant need for bail-outs has alarmed the Japanese led consortium that had agreed to purchase the Dome.
