DONALD TRUMP BACKS STEINBRENNER ON WEST SIDE STADIUM

     Donald Trump reportedly backs a plan to build a new Yankee
Stadium on the West Side of Manhattan, according to this
morning's N.Y. DAILY NEWS.  Trump:  "If [Yankee Owner] George
[Steinbrenner] picked up the phone and called, I would be there
in 15 seconds.  No question.  I would support anything George
does."  In a DAILY NEWS column, CBS' Pat O'Brien reports that
Trump favors a site behind Madison Square Garden and Penn
Station, with "10 stories worth of parking" and serviced "by
every form of rail and MTA there" (N.Y DAILY NEWS, 9/26).  In a
commentary in today's USA TODAY, Tom Weir urges that Yankee
Stadium not be closed: "Having proved last October how temporary
it can be, baseball needs some newfound permanence" (USA TODAY,
9/26).
