Crying foul over arena “extortion” is hypocritical

Jun 30, 2014

The trouble with setting a bad example is that you inspire others to follow your lead. Imitation, after all, is the sincerest form of flattery. No need to get all hypocritical when this happens. The Kings arena boondoggle is an … Continue reading
