The Pink Elephant comes down

It was known as the city's ''pink elephant''

What some have called an example of government at its worst.
But early Sunday, when the dynamite was set off, another piece of Miami history disappeared.

The Miami arena was imploded to make way for one of several projects.

The arena was the one-time home of the Florida Panthers and Miami Heat, but had been relegated to hosting such events as the Moscow State Circus and the Miami Manatees minor-league hockey team.
