For someone like me, its frustrating to see some of the spending of public funds constantly go to areas that are of no benefit directly, especially when I consider how much I contribute. And then when a project like this arena comes up, and the debate over use of public funds stymies and almost buries the deal for years and years, I realize that my window of opportunity where I have job security, expendable income, lifestyle freedom, ability, health etc etc is closing faster than I would like and its hard not to be a little selfish.
I certainly didn't mean to alienate anyone with my post, I hope it didn't come across that way.
