There will also be a Jackson family museum, a performing arts center and a 300-room hotel on roughly 100 acres.
That's nice... but here's why I'm writing today: The plans also include a golf course.
WTF? When I think of Michael Jackson I don't think of golf. Do you? I didn't think so. I guess the folks in Gary will do anything to cash-in on the "King of Pops" name.
The cost of this project is expected to hit $1 billion over the 10-year period it takes for construction.
My prediction for this project and the golf course: It will never happen. Why? Because where in the world are folks in Indiana going to come up with a billion dollars to fund it... Good luck.
