Cato Institute Gets Attention Of D.C. Mayor Williams 

Here's what Anthony Williams said the other day according to Washington Post Reporter David Nakamura:

"I can't imagine why, with all the things happening in the world, the Cato Institute would take the time to analyze the impact of baseball in Washington, D.C.," Williams (D) said yesterday during a luncheon speech at the University Club.

I'm in favor of the stadium. It is being financed mostly by a tax on major companies in the City. I don't think it will actually impact anyone. And a baseball team will be good for D.C. It will help unify people in the nation's capital, bring development to a bad part of town, attract new residents, and hopefully, provide a new venue for vendors to utilize with their expense accounts.
