Walter Lasher’s Nov. 4 letter (“Public choices: What are our priorities?”) certainly was to the point regarding the money we spend on sports stadiums. But he should have asked the same questions about paying ballplayers millions, while teachers, schools and kids go wanting. Ever heard of any multi-millionaire sports stars who ever did any hard work or served their country? That is, before they became rich? Why are they supposed to be “heroes”?
There’s a quote, “If greed was a fever, all the world would be ill.” I think it is a disease.
