To follow up the article I published a few weeks ago [Scottsdale gives the PGA a Mulligan] I want to share something with you something I ran across recently.
Mencken has a great photo-comic strip called Bob Filner, Standup Guy, that he’s doing on the newly-elected San Diego mayor.
Now I don’t know Mayor Filner from Adam other than what I’ve shared above, and one post-election TV interview in which he sounds like a pretty reasonable and fiscally conscientious guy. I also don’t know the background on the two Mencken strips I’m sharing here.
However, given some concern here in Scottsdale about Mickelson (who got his own taxpayer-funded new clubhouse courtesy of Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane), and the PGA (which is getting a new clubhouse courtesy of a taxpayer subsidy and amendment to their TPC lease), I thought it would be fun to share Mencken’s work:
Introducing Bob Filner, Stand-Up Guy: New clubhouse for Balboa Golf Course.
Filner Takes On Phil Mickelson: Phil’s tax rant.
