Spring Business

I realize most of my posts have been reactive in the past few weeks--a link here, an excerpt there, a snide remark or two. Not much fresh or original to say while we wait for practice games to start, more trade rumors to fly and final rosters to come into focus.

Here's a link to a SJ Merc story that starts off with some interesting figures re. the spring training business boom in Arizona. The writer makes an implicit case that higher taxes to fund certain civic renovations can be a boon to an entire city or region's economy. Maybe I'm extrapolating too much; beat me, flog me, tie me up and make me watch Passion of the Christ. Or worse, call me a tax-and-spend liberal. I can take anything you dish out.
