D.C. baseball stadium opponents are on to me

Friday's Washington Post and Washington Times have accounts of a public hearing held Thursday on the financing of the baseball stadium. Apparently, it was not pretty.

But what interested me about these accounts was the comment of David Catania, a council member who's an opponent of the stadium. Catania said this:

"Quite frankly, I think it's lunacy, nonsense ... to say people are going to come from the suburbs, go outside the defined [stadium] area and shop in our stores. We're basically proposing to subsidize the entertainment of Marylanders and Virginians."
Uh, oh! They're on to me.
