I tip my hat to the rich folks seeking to get Rhode Island taxpayers to help the rich folks build a baseball stadium on downtown Providence land where there otherwise might be high-paying, year-round jobs. They're even more brazen than I thought. I wonder how many of these entrepreneurs are Florida residents for six months and a day every year.
And it's exciting to see that Brown University is in on the scam, too.
Why not put the money into fixing the roads and bridges, expanding RIPTA and improving vocational education instead? Now that would be good for business. But too boring?
