I am writing about the proposed "sin tax." I enjoy a bottle of wine when I go out for dinner, but I do not enjoy football. There are so many things in Buffalo that deserve our money. I would happily give my "wine money" to the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Darwin Martin restoration project or many other architectural and cultural causes.
Why must we stunt our growth by putting our future in a football team? Sports will disappear, but great architecture remains forever.
