frustration { a decade of resistance

and the Twin's ballpark deal is almost a reality.

This really bothers me. I've been involved in one form or another (from letter writing, caucusing, moral support, etc.) from stopping the Twin's from getting this ball park. Over 10 years of fighting it. People in both St. Paul and Minneapolis. For naught. The Hennepin County council cut a deal with the Twins. Now they will take the land for the stadium by force (condemnation and imminent domain) if need be, and the poeple of Hennepin County get a nice tax to pay for it, while the Twin's will contribute more than any plan in the past has required them to do, but still they are getting damn near a free ride on the backs of the tax payers.
