    even if it doesn't come from locals.  Tourists cost money, for roads and utilities and airports.  That money should go into infrastructure, not a private school's pocket.  Or a pro football stadium, as in Atlanta and in Seattle.  

    I am so done with college and professional sports sucking from the public teat!

      but I was disputing Kos's characterization of the feasibility study funds having come from local taxpayers, which is not the case. Nor is it the case that the feasibility study money went into "a private school's pocket". It went into... well, a feasibility study.
