For a great overview of why mayors keep throwing cash at sports teams without getting any demonstrated benefit in return, check out The Nation “Why do mayors love sports stadiums?”  (The Pittsburgh Penguins are briefly mentioned.)   Ruth Ann Dailey’s latest Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Opinion piece from September 19 is a humorous look at the absurdity of the whole Civic Arena political process and current situation with the former St. Nicholas Church
