Bloomberg News ran a nice summary of the “Detroit is building a new arena for the Red Wings even while it’s going bankrupt” controversy yesterday, most of it covering ground we’ve already discussed here. But it does include one truly epic quote from Detroit emergency fiscal manager Kevyn Orr:
“There’s always a debate about does this really pan out?” Orr, the emergency manager, said in a July 25 interview. “The reality is we are so needy of some economic development, I can’t see how we don’t pursue it because if we don’t, what’s left?”
Um, how about pretty much anything else?
