Stupid Stadium Tricks

Oh boy, they've broken ground on a stadium in Chester, a poor suburb of Philadelphia. A lot of public money is being spent, and while it has excellent highway access it has not so great public transit access. As this article points out, the city doesn't even have a supermarket.

I guess it's outside the box thinking, but supermarkets are exactly the kind of thing local authorities should, if necessary, be subsidizing if they're going to start throwing public money around.
