Under the spreading chestnut tree
I sold you and you sold me:
There lie they, and here lie we
Under the spreading chestnut tree.
Uh, apparently things have changed since I moved on. What happened to the other taxpayer funded stadium across from IPFW? Mort
Well, Mort, whether things have changed or not depends greatly on what your definition of "change" is (sorry to get all Clintonesque on you here). "More of the same" could be construed as "change," I guess, since today's condition is not identical to yesterday's. But it's really a projection of yesterday: magnified, but with the same shape and general character.Anyway, to answer your question directly: "Memorial Stadium," as they used to call it, is now called "Bulldozer Bait." It stands unused, un-paid-for, and will now oblige our local genius leaders to come up with a couple million to demolish. Last I heard, it is destined to become more parking spaces for the Coliseum. To pay for the demolition, though, they'll probably need to up the parking rate from the current $4 to $5 or $6.As they say: "You can't make this stuff up." To which, all I can add is: for a place of its size, it seems to me that Fort Wayne / Allen County is uncommonly corrupt, in a grubby, small-time way.
