The Marlins cut a deal, and once again the pathetic public doesn't have a clue what just blew by

Miami Commissioner Johnny Winton, whose district includes Bicentennial Park, earlier this year won commission support for creation of the Bicentennial Park-Waterfront Renewal Committee, which is undertaking a thorough exploration of possibilities for the park and surrounding areas. In fact city commissioners voted unanimously to set aside $200,000 to fund a charrette addressing that subject in early February. For more information contact Bob Weinreb in Winton's office (305-250-5333).

We also now have something called the Miami-Dade County Community Improvement Trust, a group created earlier this year by the state legislature and charged with investigating options for financing and constructing a baseball stadium for the Florida Marlins. Their meetings are open to all, and they enthusiastically welcome ideas from the general public. The trust represents exactly the sort of democratic process that builds confidence in government by its transparency and inclusiveness.

Which is exactly why Alex Penelas, Joe Carollo, Mario Diaz-Balart, and John Henry felt the need to drive a stake through its heart before it could do them any harm.
