One benefit to the Bucks deal...

Talk radio and the rest of the right-wing whine machine can never again throw out that canard that government in Wisconsin doesn't do enough for business. Take a look at Bruce Murphy's jaw-dropping list of breaks and benefits thrown the owners' way as legislators fall prey to corporate control and Bigprojectitis.

Supporting the deal isn't a question of whether you like basketball - - I do - - or believe the Bucks are a community asset - - they are.

The question is how does a deal like this fit into any reasonable definition of fairness or onto a social as well as financial balance sheet - - which it does not.

Imagine if every business wanting to remain, expand or locate in Wisconsin asked for something similar?
