"If it weren't for Red Hat, right now the Hamilton Community Foundation wouldn't have had $40 mill provided to them from Bob's aunt....Let's not jeapordize what the Young's might give to Hamilton in the future."

Please, Hamilton Fan, have some pride. This isn't a coalmine town in rural Kentucky. We don't have to kiss up to the boss.

Let's call a spade a spade. If it weren't for the sweat of countless thousands of hard-working Hamiltonians toiling in her family's cotton mill she wouldn't have had the $40 million in the first place.

Joyce Young donated a portion of her fortune while in her old age. She continued to live comfortably. There were no tag days for her. And, in any event, charity is about giving, not giving to justify receiving especially when it's not you but your nephew who's doing the receiving.

Now, let's do the math; Bob's aunt gives $40 million of HER money to charity and taxpayers give $115 million of THEIR money to Bob (who else needs a stadium this big?) to subsidize a hobby that he freely pursued.

Using this rationale, we might as well just give Charlie Juravinski the whole city.
