I didn't find that there was any informed debate on the arena plan, ever. Sacramento City Council meetings on the subject resembled high school pep rallies. And as for the ability of the citizenry to address the issue, it is difficult to explain the rather unfortunate funding mechanism for the arena, which most resembles the 125 percent mortgages so popular during the housing boom, in the two minutes allocated to public speakers.
