The Fort Worth Star-Telegram (and their food critic) took a break from their full on propaganda spewing about how the Trinity River Central City Uptown Riverside Panther Island something or other Vision was the best thing since sliced bread to spew that Cabela's coming to town was the best thing since sliced bread?
That is if being the top tourist attraction in Texas is the best thing since sliced bread.
Apparently the Star-Telegram has institutional amnesia.
We saw no mention of the Star-Telegram claims that Cabela's would become the "Number 1 tourist attraction in Texas".
How much were the abatements again that Fort Worth gave Cabela's to come to town?
Who all rode in that helicopter ride to look at the patch of dirt which was to become #1?
Was it a lawsuit or an ethics complaint made by citizens concerning the sucking of more tax dollars for another sham? You'll have to remind us, as we couldn't find that info in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram either.
As usual, Durango does better reporting in a blog post titled Did Fort Worth Ever Get Payback For Being A Sucker For Cabela's Con Job? Someone hire this guy would ya? He doesn't eat much.
