Blackmail In Charlotte

The normal NBA/pro sports blackmail is under way in Charlottte, as the
Hornets -- a multi-million dollar business - are demanding
that the city build them a new arena,
or they'll go to a city which
will. To paraphrase -- we think it was Daniel Patrick Moynihan - we'll be
at the loading docks to wave them goodbye. The endless suggestions that
pro sports teams are so valuable that they must have new arenas every 5-10 years
is really getting tiresome.
