Share: Share Tweet Email KGO By OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- The reconstruction of Notre Dame will likely rely heavily on extensive laser scans of the structure, produced by art historian Andrew Tallon in 2015.

EL PASO, Texas — "1659." Thirty-two-year-old Beto O'Rourke didn't know what the text arriving to his flip phone meant. But he knew it was from the woman he'd taken to Mexico on a blind date three days earlier, and he figured it was a good sign. It was December 2004, and O'Rourke and Amy Sanders had parked near the international bridge and walked over the Rio Grande from El Paso to Ciudad Juarez. They got margaritas at the Kentucky Club, a cavernous, 99-year-old bar named for Bourbon distilleries that decamped to Mexico during U.S. Prohibition.

Delta Air Lines plans to offer direct flights next year between Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and Mexico City. The move — subject to approval by the federal government — would connect the Twin Cities beginning June 8 with a key financial center in Latin America that is home to almost 9 million people. “Mexico City is just the latest in a growing string of international destinations to which we’ve landed air service with the help of GREATER MSP and the MSP Regional Air Service Partnership,” said Metropolitan Airports Commission Executive Director and CEO Brian Ryks, in a press release. Ryks noted recent announcements from the airline regarding service to Seoul, South Korea, and Dublin, Ireland. “Mexico City is the most popular destination in Latin America lacking direct air service from MSP International Airport,” he said. “On average, 700 people a day travel from MSP to Mexico.
