Ballard Wants Prince William and Princess Kate To Visit Indy's New Cricket Stadium
You can't make this stuff up. In an interview with WISH-TV's Eric Halvorson, Mayor Greg Ballard said that he had reached out to the British consulate to invite Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, to visit Indy's new world sports park that he is having built on the city's east side for a national cricket tournament being hosted there next summer, even though he's provided insufficient funding to the city's parks department to adequately maintain the parks the city already has. This man's priorities are so screwed up on so many levels that it is beyond being humorous. It's just downright sad that we have a mayor who is totally consumed by sports facilities and handing out large subsidies to his campaign contributors while so many parts of the city are literally becoming disaster areas due to out-of-control crime and the large number of abandoned homes and commercial buildings occasioned by neighborhoods in decline as more and more people move outside of Marion County to escape the poor conditions. In case you had any doubts, no, William and Kate won't be visiting Indy's world sports park next summer.
