What abou this?

http://www.nj.com/super-bowl/index.ssf/2013/02/super_bowl_power_outage_a_concern_for_superdome_officials_records_show.html

Superdome officials warned just months before the Super Bowl that the venue's electrical system could suffer a power outage and rushed to replace some of the equipment ahead of the big game

While the cause of Sunday's 34-minute outage is still under investigation, records released Monday show that Superdome officials were worried in October about losing power during the NFL championship.

Tests on the electrical feeders that connect incoming power from utility lines to the stadium showed decay and "a chance of failure," state officials warned in a memo dated Oct. 15. The documents, obtained through a records request by The Associated Press, also show the utility that supplies the stadium expressed concern about the reliability of the service before the Super Bowl.

The memo said utility Entergy New Orleans and the Superdome's engineering staff "had concerns regarding the reliability of the Dome service from Entergy's connection point to the Dome."

The memo was prepared for the Louisiana Stadium & Exposition

I am wondering if there is a section where troubled political campaigns can be safely placed that complies with the Rule of Cautious Editing Judgment.

I have two requests:

1.) Radiohead appears to be a chore to add. From what I read on The Other W Iki OK Computer was quite the mess. Anyone wish to tackle that and any other troubled Radiohead productions?

2.) Dixie Chicks' Home... too complicated and often disputed by editors on Wiki towards how troubled it really was. Too much of a tough cookie to crack.

Just so I'm clear on this: which producer pushed Buckley for more hits? Verlaine, or Wallace? It was Wallace, right?

Wallace. Verlaine, being a member of Television and Television not being much of a commercial band themselves, does not seem really likely to have pushed for something like that. Therefore it would have made no sense for Sony to have sent him in for the sake of creating hits.

I heard RENT had a very troubled production, but I don't have that much knowledge about it. Any assistance?

Well, it did take a long time to work out the kinks in the production, and Larson worked under very adverse conditions ... then died the night before the show opened.

What were the adverse conditions though? And apparently opening night was hell, too.

Should this entry be tagged as Trivia?

One of the edits made me realise I poorly phrased the Star Wars example: Lucas didn't ask Kershner to come back for Rot J because of the over-budget-ness.
