BaseballPlus Has CredibilityMinus

On Friday, the first thing you see in the News-Sentinel is "Ballpark vital for downtown, report says." Neither Ryan Lengerich nor myself were surprised.

Having spoken to members of the committee as well as observing some early interviews it was clear that the recommendation from this group was never in doubt. They went into this "fact-finding mission" with a preconceived idea of what they wanted to happen. Since the objectivity of the commission is in doubt one must also doubt the objectivity of the study they performed.

Don't get me wrong. I do think that a new ballpark has a chance of revitalizing downtown. But recent history from around the country shows that it is a slim chance. Add the increased tax burden, and lack of public support for the project and I smell a political albatross waiting to happen.

Yes, I'm still here

I've received several e-mails from readers who were wondering why there haven't been any recent posts here at IP. To tell you the truth I needed a break. Better to take it now than in the crunch time of the election season.

I expect this fall will probably be a snoozer for all those who are political junkies. My fellow cohorts and I are planning a few changes for this site during this time. We're not ready to spill the beans on them yet so keep an eye for future announcements from us.
