Thank you for the excellent article by Andrea Gallo and the follow-up editorial on the secrecy surrounding many aspects of the public-private partnership (emphasis on public!) to build a new arena on public land and apparently tap some public money.

LSU and the Tiger Athletic Foundation have maneuvered, no doubt with the blessing of all the involved insiders, to put documents related to the plan out of reach by placing them in the custody of TAF — disheartening but unsurprising and the height of arrogance.
