We had some readers email in after yesterday’s News & Notes that we missed some key stories, so here they are.

News: Sony Pictures plans to open a theme park in Albertville that’s like the middle of Mall of America, but way bigger and with Sony characters.

Notes: It is insane.

News: The only bid to come in for the Nicollet Mall reconstruction was $24 million higher than expected.

Notes: We called this one a long time ago. It’s a boondoggle on par with the Vikings stadium, especially the adjacent park to be built that’s currently underfunded. We’ll be hearing a lot more about this, but unfortunately not about accountability for how it was sold.
