Re "Losing Kings would bruise our economy" (Marcos Breton, Jan. 23): I am not a Kings fan and don't believe that it's the proper role of government to support professional sports teams. So when I read Marcus Breton's column, I was hoping to discover some facts behind the obsession that some locals exhibit regarding the Kings.
I had hoped to learn the amount of money that it is estimated that the Kings contribute to our local economy along with a figure approximating the total Sacramento-area economy, so I could rationally assess the correctness of the headline, "Losing Kings would bruise our economy."
The promise in that headline was not fulfilled by the content.
