Re " Weasels infest city's arena deal" (Marcos Breton, Jan. 12): Marcos Breton is an accomplished name-caller. He says Sacramento City Councilman Kevin McCarty is a weasel because he does not support the city power players' position on the new arena. Breton needs to refine his understanding of democracy. McCarty was not elected to represent the power structure. Did the Kings' owners overpay for one of the worst franchises in the NBA? Of course. Are they stupid, or is there another reason? You would think a newspaper person would be looking for the answer.
