It’s been a few years since I’ve watched the Simpsons regularly. Like a lot of people have noted, it lost its fastball years ago. But it’s still crafty and knows how to get people out. Like the one from last Sunday, in which the idea of publicly funded stadiums was caught looking. Quoteable moment at the 18:22 mark, as Mr. Burns opens his new basketball arena:
Welcome to the American Dream: A billionaire using public funds to construct a private playground for the rich and powerful!
And there’s some bonus Mark Cuban, too!
(dual hat tips: to Atlantic Yards Report for writing about and linking to the whole episode, and to Pete Toms, for letting me know that Atlantic Yards was writing about and linking to the whole episode)
