Gary, you stated in your response to Jim Willson’s question pertaining to taxpayer financing of stadiums:
“As we found out when Raymond James Stadium was built, who identifies where that 30 percent comes from? If it comes from future profits (as the Bucs’ contribution did), that doesn’t really impress me. ”

The Bucs have paid for none of Raymond James stadium, so I don’t understand your comment about future profits. Can you please clarify? Thanks.

When the RayJay was being built, the Glazers made noise about donating a large percent to the stadium. It was out og the personal seat licenses. They saw it as their money. Others disagreed.

Good thoughts on living players…and dead ones. I have trouble thinking of all the players, was Clements better than Nolan Ryan? I don’t remember and am too lazy to look up the records! And from what I read you’re right, there is little money in publishing houses anymore, which is a shame, nothing in life is much better than picking up a book and reading…although in the past you could say the same thing about a newspaper…
