As one of the .3 percent of the people in Cobb who are opposed to public financing of the new Braves Stadium, I couldn’t help but wonder what Mr. John Loud was smoking when he claims that 99.7 percent of Cobb Countians support such financing. Either he’s living in a bubble or suffering from delusions. Either way, thanks for reporting on such an outlandish claim. It fits in nicely with all the other far-fetched claims that new stadium boosters have been making from the get go.
However, if opponents are as few in number as John asserts, surely he wouldn’t object to creating a mechanism by which reactionary troglodytes like myself can opt out from the breadbasket of taxes that will be used to subsidize the Brave’s “investment.”
