WTAE's "Viewpoint" on our side ...

Postby sj? on Sun Feb 26, 2006 11:27 am

President & GM of WTAE says it short & sweet ..
and Dead On...

It's not just about Hockey & 45 days a year ..what about the 100
dates other that hockey the arena is used...

Timing is perfect .. state should make anyone getting the license earmark money for new arena ..

Think about the revenue & jobs for the region !!

This scenerio is typical of how our politicians have dealt with all of the businesses that have left over the years. They stand there with a dumb look on their face, pull their pockets inside out while simueltaneously shrigging their shoulders.

Most business don't have peole that are passionate about their product. I mean Lazarus is nice but I can go alot of places to buy a coat and downtown is such a hassle when parking. However the Pens have people that not only want to keep buying this "crappy" product but they are highly pissed at the lack of effort put forth by the politicians.

Now that self preservation has kicked in and they are doing things (after years) it's too little too late and they seem to be more concerned with their shallow agenda then the life blood of our city which is and always has been BUSINESSES.
