Thursday letters: Baseball park is not a priority

February 13, 2014 

— Building a baseball park in Columbia will put a lot on residents who are losing their homes because they can’t keep up with the big dreams of government officials. Let’s hope the sewer lines don’t cave in under big cosmopolitan stores. While the big chiefs do so much thinking and planning, they should imagine themselves in the fancy ballpark with no home, cold, their children hungry.

The poor and seniors need medication. Would you adopt families and put them in your home? Of course not. That would be terrible; a ball field would be better. Get real.
