Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. They all work for Mayor Bob’s pals.

Ken Lay was partnered with them and the Chronicle to get the slim majority vote needed to approve the stadiums.

And people were shocked to learn that the Chronicle “missed” the Enron story. Protected partnership.

The kept putting it on the ballot until people said yes. Then they repackaged it "so that it would be paid for by hotel guests and car rentals." So a few more numbnuts said "okay, well it's not my money!"

However, all the cities get that dumb idea so if you travel and rent a car you pay 80% in taxes.

Then we go to the stadium and get charged $7 for a pint of beer.
