That Paragon of Civic Virtue, the Miami Herald, Sells Out to an Asian Casino

The Miami Herald owns 14 acres of prime downtown Miami, bayfront land. Its lead article on the frontpage today announces that it sold that land to "the Asian gaming giant" Genting Malaysia.

(It wouldn't be so bad except that for my entire life the Miami Herald, in a most condescending and pseudo-Enlightenment way, has lectured the community on "doing good" and "doing better." But now that we are all post-Moderns, I know it must feel good to the Herald's owners to get such a good price for the property. And feeling good is what counts these days.)
