     with UMAX: "The Raiders' extortion ploy is all the more
     ridiculous because they are blowing a chance to get a nice
     windfall of cash and public relations.  Why do they insist
     on treating public officials as the enemy, when all parties
     have a common stake in making this deal work?" (S.F.
