“One of the worst public projects anyone could imagine..."

No, not the Billion Dollar Boondoggle Trinity River Vision Central City Panther Island…though it ranks right on up there.  This quote came from an economist on the Arlington stadium deal. Not the mayor, or hired hands for the park.

If you want to know just how bad YOU are getting screwed, Arlington, read the report on with many links to the story.  These 100 year ballparks are almost as common as the 100 year floods around here.

Just 22 years ago, Major League Baseball (MLB)'s Texas Rangers opened what was then called The Ballpark in Arlington. Now known as Globe Life Park, the "monument to baseball"—as then-Rangers owner George W. Bush called it—was touted during its opening season as a jewel of a retro stadium that could become one of baseball's eternal parks, like Chicago's Wrigley Field or Boston's Fenway Park, and last 100 years.

Texas Rangers' Proposed Stadium Deal Is Yet Another Loser For Taxpayers
