Saving Little Johnny Edmonton

When it comes to the economic costs and benefits of subsidizing new arenas for essentially private operations run by billionaires, for a bunch of millionaires, the common tax-paying citizen gets bombarded with data that is incomplete at best, dishonest at worst, and almost always skewed towards one conlusion or the other.

Perhaps the best summation of the issue I've seen yet is to be found at Black Dog Hates Skunks*, regarding the proposal for a new downtown stadium for the Edmonton Oilers. It's also the funniest read you'll have all week...

*Found via Battle of Alberta
