Predictable - Marlins edition

The city/county are on the hook for nearly $2bn for the stadium they built for the Marlins (in real dollars, given the time value of the loan).  They had a deal with the Marlins to share in some profits. 

Selling the team within a 10-year span was supposed to trigger additional income to help with the debt.  But predictably, Luria and his cadre of lawyers found a loophole to not have to contribute to it.

So we south Floridians remain on the hook for it.  Aren't we lucky?

The lame list

Stupidity is something I can not tolerate. Here is my current list of dopey attitudes that chafe me. Don’t be stupid. Don’t be one of these:

  • Anti-science
  • Flat earther
  • Faux patriot
  • Blind supporter of anything, or anyone
  • conspiracy theorist
  • Doubt the Moon landing, or call it a hoax
  • Anti-vaxxer
  • Believe in a deep state
  • Pretending to understand something that is enormously complicated, and just oversimplifying it
