Taxpayer shopping

The Fresno City Council had no problems in seeing the difference between a private-sector business and a public-sector endeavor when they turned down the prospect of taking over the ice skating rink.

There is a place for government; and there is a place for business. It is too bad that our California State University, Fresno, President John Welty, cannot. Usually, it is comical to watch our (usually) liberal academics make their forays into the private sector by starting their own businesses, but Campus Pointe is being paid for with our tax dollars.

When it fails, Dr. Welty will just move up the ladder to his new promotion, collect his liberal bonus and we (the taxpayers) get left holding the bag.
