I would gladly pay you Tuesday for a Hamburger today, is what J. Wellington Wimpy from Popeye always said. Apparently now, Mayor Fenty wants to take Wimpy’s route, and use $50M from the Ballpark Tax toward the General Fund for the city over the next four years. The Ballpark Tax is charged to DC’s large and medium businesses as a way of financing the stadium’s purchase, and now those same medium and large businesses aren’t happy to see that money being diverted back to city coffers during the crisis.

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.
