Letter: Redskins Help Rich 

Your article on the cost overruns at the Redskins camp ("Redskins Camp Goes Over Budget, Council Members Angry," Street Talk, May 15) reinforces Brian Glass' key point on your Back Page ("Denver Dreaming"). These projects are typified by understated costs and overstated benefits. There may be good reasons to have athletic teams in an area, but return on investment is not one of them. This is another example of government helping rich folks socialize costs while privatizing profits. The only benefit I can discern from the Redskins deal is that Bon Secours will take over and, hopefully, improve the school property at the corner of Patterson and Libby avenues, which the city has let deteriorate into an eyesore.
