Addendum: But where’s the money coming from?
The question raised about the ICC center at 51 Park Place goes further.
At the request of Bob Nunz, take a look at money flowing into other projects:
Here’s Frank Rich in Sunday’s NYTimes: “The Billionaires Bankrolling the Tea Party”
And from Saturday’s Times: “Financier’s Largess Shows G.O.P.’s Wall St. Support” (also a swift boat supporter).
Since money is speech in our polity, they have a right to do what they do with their moola. Of course, if we had a fairer tax system, they’d have less to do it with.
