MASSIVE EDIT: Apparently I'm the idiot who couldn't figure out it was purely sarcastic.
I exchanged an email with John Short. His response was:
Don't know anything about Brad Humphreys but I'm convinced his point of view needs to be
presented more often.
I'm not opposed to billionaires having play-toys of their own, but I am opposed to guys
and gals -- and senior citizens -- paying big tax dollars for facilities to house events
the average person can't afford to watch in person more than once or twice a week.
Interesting that there have been several e-mails already referring to my column on the
subject. Most, overwhelmingly, see the point I was making -- that Mandell and his
committee went in with an agenda. Millionaires (billionaires) almost always find a way to
get what they want and they usually find a way to have you and I pay for it in the name
of progress and civic pride.
Thanks for asking.
My sincere apologies to John Short.
