More Stadium Drama

If you’re as tired as I am of this whole stadium drama, today’s news was just insult to injury. Apparently, Mayor-for-Life Barry decided he hadn’t messed with the system enough, and so he decided to collude with an owner-candidate for the Nationals:

Barry said yesterday that he had intended for D.C. entrepreneur Jonathan Ledecky, who is one of eight bidders trying to buy the Washington Nationals, to present a plan Ledecky had agreed to with Barry. If baseball sold Ledecky the Nationals, Barry said, Ledecky had agreed to cover cost overruns on the stadium and give African Americans a 40 percent equity stake in the team.

So, more backroom deals for the Mayor? Now, who’s surprised?

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
