Once again we have to explain simple things to the media with simple little words. Those of us who are against a TAXPAYER FUNDED baseball stadium ARE NOT AGAINST BASEBALL!!! Why on earth would we go out and protest it? We would be perfectly happy for you to build yourselves a stadium.
And if the folks at this rally are so enthused about putting this stadium in Wilmington, today would have been an EXCELLENT opportunity for them to kick off a fund raising drive, with the paid-for-by- Mandalay baseball players they trucked ceremonially each dropping in a check for a few grand each.
You know, it's funny, the only thing anyone is against here is taxpayer funding, yet I haven't heard any of the folks like Port City Baseball breathing a word about trying to do any fund raising on their own. They're too busy trying to rationalize using all the rest of us's money instead.
