07:52 AM ET 03.08 | A familiar script played out another scene Thursday in Atlanta -- a progress report on the possibility of a new stadium. Notwithstanding perceptions that this was a step forward, it still ignores the biggest problem with this project: Public money is being used for a private business. The Falcons and the mayor continue to bang away about how the city will reap benefits from a new football stadium, when, in fact, nobody is suffering with the "old" stadium. ... It's business. It's about using other people's money, as much as you can, as often as you can. It's about the guys in the suits making you believe they are making major concessions, rather than ever admitting that maybe they should be underwriting the costs for their own business.
