    I caught John Schuerholz on the news last night saying that moving the braves wouldn’t have happened if it was done in the public square.

    …which would be fine if their business model didn’t depend on a massive investment from Cobb County.

    Two things on this one: I’m glad I don’t live in Cobb county (this time), and I’m still pissed Gwinnett bought the braves a minor league stadium.

    I’m still waiting to hear how this is NOT a subsidy for a special interest, more worthy of Cobb’s tax dollars than other community investments, and what it would have taken for the braves to stay in Atlanta.

    Both left and right surge in UK local council elections. Labour gained 170 seats, Tories lost 140, their Liberal Democrat coalition partners lost 150, but U.K. Independence Party was the big story, gaining more than 100 seats and becoming a real player in next year’s general election.

    UKIP favors withdrawing from the EU and limiting immigration.

    Voting for the EU parliament took place at the same time, although the results won’t be known until week-end. UKIP is expected to gain then too.

    Some of my Y2K patches will blow up in 2050. If people are still using that code at that point they will deserve what they get. Either way, by then I certainly won’t care.
