Won't Get Fooled Again

Oh, the humanity! Poor Mayor Bloomberg didn’t get
his new stadium. It’s stories like this that stir my
native New Yorker pride.

Besides the obvious funding issues, there is an
even simpler equation to consider:

The proposed stadium would hold 75,000 seats.

The current population of New York City is about 8,008,278.

So how many of these average Joes are going to be able
to watch the Olympics anywhere except in front of a TV?

Forget it. Let Paris deal with that headache.

Maybe now the billionaire mayor can get back to
some slightly more important construction work.
