So that's why Rob Fong never wrote me back. He's busy putting a shine on the arena deal turd. Metaphorical turd, of course, not literal. Here's a quote from the end:

"We're getting those approvals so we could build an arena if the financing plan comes together," Totah said Thursday. "We think it's something the community and the city want to see. It will be a great addition for our overall project
Oh really, Suheil? What part of no don't these people understand?
