Re "With vote, Sacramento Kings to build new NBA arena" (Page A1, May 21): The article shows how excited Mayor Kevin Johnson was when the City Council passed the final agreements regarding the Kings. So millions of dollars will be spent to entertain us by having a ball travel from one player to another? How exciting.

Too bad we don't get this excited about educating children who will be the future leaders of tomorrow. On the other hand, considering the damage Mayor Johnson's wife has done to public education, maybe it is best for the mayor to stick to the Kings' arena issue.
