The Dumbest Thing I've Seen Today

Disclaimer: I'm not the smartest bird in the flock, and I will be the first to admit that. Well, unless the flock is made up of folks like my one brother in law. Jeebus, is he a dope. In that case, I would be the smartest bird in the flock, but it would collectively be the dumbest flock of birds flying.

But in what has to be the stunningest most stunning comment I've read about the proposed Arden Hills stadium site so far, Dave McClung, a former City Council member in Arden Hills, said this of the long term vision of the current site:

"That never involved a huge stadium with a lot of blacktop," McClung said. "To throw 20 years worth of planning out the window because suddenly Zygi Wilf and the Vikings want to plop a stadium there is ridiculous. Sorry, that just doesn’t work for me."

Okay, that's cool. But if you want to seriously tell me that in 20 years all you've managed to develop is...nothing...and you're miffed because someone actually has an idea on how to, you know, make that land valuable, and you think it's a bad idea....well, I'd LOVE to hear what Mr. McClung's 'vision' is.

And people wonder why the common folk have lost faith in their government.
