H.L. Mencken & the Citi what never naps
The only thing cheerier in the news is Citi Field. Citibank is giving the New York Mets $400,000,000 to have their new ballpark called Citi Field for twenty entire years. By then, of course, Citibank may be gone, a victim of a misapprehension of how customers might interpret such a shrewd transaction. I know I’m withdrawing my money. Do people know the value of words? Or was it Mencken who advised, Never underestimate the stupidity of the American people?
