A dome city that almost happened in Brandon

Too bad that they did not mention Brandon in this article.  There is a book written about the plans for Brandon Mn.  The city would have covered about 75,000 acres.  A geodesic dome would have partially covered the MXC.  The design was incredibly strong and would have been tornado-proof.  Aitken County was considered for the site after it failed in Brandon.
