NO STADIUMS

Let's revisit this issue in 2082. I think the Metrodome can easily last 100 years. Please write your Minnesota legislators.

Tom,
How do I get ahold of the GP candidates video to put on St. Louis Park cable access?

I have a link to the Green Party of Minnesota under "Links". Also, Michael said you could give him a call.

Sports stadiums are another form of corporate freeloading. I've seen several reports that say professional sports do little to help boost a cities economy. In a major cultural center like the Twin Cities there are so many activites to choose from that losing a sports team would be no big deal. In fact Richard Florida has written extensively on this subject. He saids that cities should say get lost to teams that try to hold cities hostage for new facilities. Creative professionals could give a damn about pro sports anyways. And it is the professional creative class that brings vitality to cities.

Take it from someone who has lived with all the bribery and coersion. We already have built two or three stadiums here for the damn Spurs team. Nothing is ever good enough for them--makes me mad thinking about it.

San Antonio sucks. Sorry, I'm in one of my flight over fight modes.
