Just the Facts

Another letter to the editor saying that we need a convention center in Albany. Do they mention the Brookings Report? Do they cite facts and figures about the convention center industry? Do they think? No. They just say we need it just like we needed the Pepsi Arena. So the Pepsi Arena lost money this year, is that good for Albany? Did you really need to see Yanni?

The facts say a convention center is a bad economic move (for everyone except politicians and developers). But why deal with the facts?
