A strange new twist in the D.C. baseball saga

WTOP news in Washington is reporting that the campaign opposing construction of a publicly financed baseball stadium in the nation's capital has been largely funded by the owner of adult theatres and gay nightclubs in "D.C.'s unofficial Red Light district." Apparently many of these businesses would be forced to move or close up shop if the stadium construction deal is approved.

Yeah, it'd be a real shame to replace such a family-friendly neighborhood with a big, bad baseball stadium. Thank goodness we have D.C. Councilwoman Linda Cropp to take the moral high-ground on this one.
