    As long as the Shockoe stadium proposal is still a threat, from this point forward we promise to boycott the Flying Squirrels’ baseball games and other supporting businesses. This is not something we take lightly- many of us like the Flying Squirrels and recognize the harmful economic effect that this boycott will have. However, with the Mayor and proponents not allowing a referendum or citizens’ vote on the Shockoe stadium proposal, and in effect muting our political voice, we have decided it is time to exercise our economic voice.

    Hmmm, boycotting a free event for kids to wear costumes and get candy to exercise your political voice. I’m sure that will have a far-reaching impact…

  3. Aaron on said:

    Oops, I meant “economic voice” not “political voice”. Anyway, keep up the good work, boycotting free kids events.

  4. Somehow, Scott, I don’t think your opinion in this case is going to matter.
