Excessive zeal or hubris?

The postponement of the opening of the Convention Center and Marriott Hotel is regretable, especially since events have to be cancelled.

Getting thousands of things done simultaneously and all necessary approvals from officials and Marriott is a formidable task. Yet schedulilnlg an extra 60 days for sitting empty as a precaution would have lost revenue and idled workers.

NewsLanc does not envy the the contractors, Penn Square Partners and the Convention Center Authority the task of meeting a tight deadline. After all, prudence has always been missing from the Project.
