Built it anyway

In the early 90's we had a referendum to replace the old Durham Athletic Park where the Durham Bulls played and the movie Bull Durham was filmed. It failed miserably mostly because the owners were very wealthy and the citizens did not want to fund their endeavor. However, the city scrambled, did some fancy shell game with numbers and built the new Durham Bulls Athletic Park anyway. In hindsight, it was probably the right thing to do. However, it still burns me up that the city council completely ignored the will of the people. Moral of the story: Don't think this is over if the people of Wilmington vote it down.
