prioritiesPosted: July 31, 2014
There has been a lot of buzz in these parts about the new 49ers football stadium. People have spent a lot of money for season tickets and the underlying required seat licenses. One man wrote in to our popular roads and traffic newspaper columnist asking about public transportation options, once he learned how absurdly expensive parking will also be. He said he had been debt-free. I believe even his house was even paid off, but he mortgaged it for the seat licenses and season tickets.
Even before I was laid off I had asked myself if that made any sense in terms of priorities.
