  •  Well, when it comes to stadiums (7+ / 0-)

    everyone gets mindlessly bedazzled, and it infuriates me. Cuyahoga County (Cleveland) has a so-called "sin tax" in cigarettes and booze for its two stadiums that actually lost in the city but won in the wealthier ’burbs where people are close to the county line and can avoid it.

    I am no David Sirota fan, to put it mildly. (He once HR'd me here for merely disagreeing with him). But he has a great piece on this up on Salon today.

    I hate professional team sports, and I don't see why I should pay for their free pleasure palaces so they can afford to pay players obscene amounts.

      and in the end, you are paying that money for the owners to be obscenely rich.  They don't need the money to pay the players -- they just pocket it.
