"You have a lot of interesting things and perspectives that have been given about Tiger Stadium, but the only people with money who have approached us want that stadium gone," he said.So because "People with money" want the stadium gone, it should go? Forget the history, and what it means to people in Detroit. Forget about Hank Greenberg and Charlie Gehringer. Never mind Eugene V. Debs Memorial Kazoo night, which I was fortunate enough to attend with Intern Paul, where we played labor songs on the kazoo in the bleachers.
Detroit needs development, but it's not like there's a shortage of lots. There's only one Tiger Stadium, and we'll miss it when it's gone. There's still time to stop the madness, so sign the petition.
