CRYING FOR NEW DIGS: A SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE editorial states Qualcomm Stadium "simply no longer cuts it." To say that it is "well past its prime is an understatement." Union-Tribune ownership "believes it is time, for the benefit of residents countywide, that a new multipurpose stadium be built in a private-public partnership." The U-T editorial board in coming weeks "will publish commentaries making the case for a new stadium." They will "examine potential sites and the combination of facilities that should be built in conjunction with the stadium." The editorial board also will "explain in broad terms how a stadium might be financed without breaking the backs of taxpayers" (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 12/1).
