The Right Approach to Using Extorted Money
Some King County council members have finally figured out that money taken from citizens should not be used to support commercial endeavors:
County Councilmen David Irons and Dwight Pelz on Monday formally presented a pair of proposed bills that would prevent the use of county funds or state or federal grants to support efforts to allow commercial airlines to operate at Boeing Field.
Sadly, I doubt they’ve learned that this approach should apply across the board. For instance, airlines and their passengers should pay all the costs related to Sea-Tac; the stadiums should be payed for entirely by the teams and the attendees; the proposed auto track on the peninsula should be funded entirely by the users, etc.
