report print email Source: Editorial: Theater future still in limbo
March 12, 2012 | 11:33 AM

If this "cultural center" was such an attraction, someone would have bought the theater and opened it already. Since this hasn't happened, that must mean that the PRIVATE SECTOR doesn't deem this a good investment. This is typical of what happens in government, someone has "an idea" that will "benefit" the community, therefore, the taxpayers should pay for it. What ends up happening is that it loses money and the taxpayers are on the hook for it.

Another thought, why is it that the only people who seem to think that the "community" should PROVIDE a forum to sell their wares are "ar-tee-sts"? A person writes software (for example) and they make or break it on their own but someone who throws paint on a canvas is entitled to have the "community" cover the costs?
