There is no risk connect with MUNY. It is unequaled. The backers have never lost a nickel. Few rain-outs. They control costs, make a ton on food and beverage. It is well-attended even in an historic heat wave. This tells us it should operate through September, would average 8,000 a night, and bring some people back to this failing town. The 'risk' to St. Louis is the waste of MUNY and Kiel to protect the Fox. No other city 'handcuffs' its best. Mayors and promoters would be shown the door. MUNY is closed on the 12th and the Fox opens Lion King on the 15th? Collusion is restraint of trade. Restraint of trade is in violation of federal anti trust laws. That's how you kill cities-restricting choices. Kansas City operates Kauffmasn Center full-boat in September and Starlight doesnt close til October 1st. Where the hell is the Mayor? Why doesn't he just move his office onto grand avenue.
