What is it about baseball the "other 6" hate?
You know with all this swirl going on about Linda Cropp, it occurred to me that no one is talking much at all about the 6 people that voted against baseball even with the private financing plan. In fact, given the vote that had occurred only two weeks prior, couldn't we see this coming? From that vote to Tuesday's vote, only one vote actually changed at all...Linda Cropp's in favor of baseball (with the switcheroo private financing amendment of course). With or without the amendment at least six of the 13 voters it appears were going to vote against bringing baseball to DC. Just seems odd that it barely merits a mention.
I also have to wonder about the three councilmembers who voted yes at the Nov. 30 vote, but then voted in favor of the private financing amendment before voting yes again. What were they thinking? Shouldn't they bare some responsibility as well? Yes, without their votes the amendment would still have passed 7-6 instead of 10-3, but I just don't get their rationale. Any thoughts out there?
