    What does that have to do about public money for jock palaces, Huntingman. Zip!

    You don't have to look hard for corruption in Chicago. I personally had to wring some nipples to get pension money for clients out of Chicago unions. But, Chicago is not the example that fits all. Most unions are on the up and up.

    If the stadium is built you can very well count on it being built by union workers. That is the way things are done in Minnesota.

    Besides, the NFC North needs more teams with domed stadiums It makes for better viewing at home. They should look at the new stadiums built by the Giants and Cowboys and then, one up them by building something grander.

    The Mercedes Benz Super Dome just finished a 500million renovation and it is spectacular.
    Football a fun diversion, it is true. But, if you don't want the public to vote on the taxes and you don't want to set up a plan to reimburse the public contribution, build the facility with private money.

    Let me get this straight? A kid's game is holding the state hostage and can tax at will. Football may a passion but feeding your family is a priority.

    Out of this project, the Vikings will get a jock palace where they pay no rent, get all the revenue from concessions and advertising, and the taxpayer gets the bill. To add insult to injury, a tax increase is being foisted on the citizenry to support without of the approval of a public vote.
    And they are protesting about Wall Street???
