    Hell I know a place they can start. How about the prices at a baseball game. Good grief.

    Price controls on entertainment?

    If we didn't continue to welcome the prices with open arms, we could bring them down ourselves. There's ZERO involved in a ball game that is necessity. WE could all give up the ball games and still survive just as well. But we don't.

    The fact that we willingly show up and pay $7 or more for a lousy 12 ounce bottle of beer is all we really need to know to understand why prices are that high.

    Do we need the government to save us from our stupidity?

    Free agency caused the high prices, so forget about regulations.

    Only on this board. I've probably been banned from more boards than he's ever joined.
