My letter to the editor of the Miami Herald.

The approval of the Marlins Stadium — mostly financed by tourist tax dollars — is more evidence that this never will be a great city. This approval while there are 100,000 foreclosures in Miami-Dade, pathetic education achievement and graduation rates, whole populations without health insurance, an unsustainable transportation network, mismanaged city and county governments, narrowly neighborhood-focused politics, growing unemployment, an untenable tax system, broken zoning — and so on.

”Play Ball” is fiddling while Rome burns.
