The Fallout

Lots of good stories up on the Post site now. Boswell makes a good point by asking what would we be saying about Bud Selig if he were pulling the stunts that Cropp is. Wilbon ultimately agrees with Boswell, and sees the writing on the wall. This story makes it clear that Cropp can't be trusted at all, which is exactly why MLB is serious about looking around Jan. 1. This one speculates that these kinds of shenanigans make it hard for businesses to take the District seriously. And this one explains how both the Mayor's deal and Cropp's are consistent with other cities deals, but, as Wilbon points out, the time to insist on public financing was two months ago, not now.
