Ballfield — doughnut shop — corporate welfare.
I’m contemplating a letter to the Boise mayor and City Council about a private, for-profit doughnut shop I want to have the city publicly finance. It would be a very good use of tax dollars because I plan a walking/jogging/calorie-burning track around the shop that would be open to the public 24/7. Moreover, I’d provide free doughnuts to the mayor’s office every Wednesday morning. Twenty years of those doughnuts and we’ll call it even, and the city gets to keep the track.
