REDSKINS' COOKE PICKS SITE FOR HOME TO HIS HOGS

Redskins Owner Jack Kent Cooke wants to build a new stadium on 100 acres in Landover, MD, and will ask Prince George's County to amend zoning and land-use laws to facilitate the project. Bills will be introduced tomorrow before the County Council to let Cooke start construction next year on a 78,600-seat stadium, just inside the Capital Beltway (John Mercurio, WASHINGTON TIMES, 6/24). County officials "generally have endorsed the idea of accommodating a stadium" (Neal & Pierre, WASHINGTON POST, 6/24). Columnist Michael Wilbon urges leaders to move quickly, citing the now-open L.A. market: "It's called civic blackmail and most towns have to play. Cooke to his credit has avoided such games. ... Still, how far can he be pushed?" (WASHINGTON POST, 6/26).
