Blogger Jonathan Van Gieson has a novel reason for opposing the Bruce Ratner-backed stadium development proposed for Brooklyn. "Atlantic Yards, the new 'basketball arena/half-empty office towers/slum' slated to replace 23% of Brooklyn, should be vociferously objected to, if only in response to the exorbitant amount of money they just spent to send out a full-color glossy trifold, complete with pre-millennium-era Microsoft Office-inspired logo and multi-racial stock photos. The flier appears to be an attempt to bribe people to support the impending disaster area proposed development by promising a 'Br-basketball-basketball-klyn Nets' souvenir. I'm holding out for the million dollars, myself."
