Great photos, and the show was stellar.
Yes, there may be more compelling issues (public safety, etc.) that should take priority, and not everyone gives a whit about the Kings. But as the author points out, a new arena is more than just a sports palace; it's also an ENTERTAINMENT arena--a point that often seems to get lost in these discussions. If you want Sacramento to be the kind of city that can continue to draw world-class performers to our community, please support this effort. If you want Sacramento to remain a cowtown, by all means withdraw your support.
Nice piece, DWB. I'm not a huge basketball/sports fan, but like you, I "get" how important this team is to our community. To me, that's enough reason to keep them here. I know there are many who are irritated by the Maloofs, as is the previous poster, but in my view it's really not about them--rather, it's about the vital force (and economic stimulus) this team has brought to our community. If there's any way to keep them here, I'm all for it.
Lovely article. I like the idea of "taking it to the streets" - It's uplifting to see some colorful art around the city.
Bravo to Deb Belt for providing a balanced view of a controversial subject. I completely agree with "yippee" above that diversity should be encouraged and celebrated. I hope the City Council takes that into consideration in making its final decision.
