"Despite their admiration for the ballpark and their agreement that the Twins need one," the Star Tribune story noted, "panel members didn't think the Houston model would fly back home."

"I'm not advocating public financing,' said Steve Kirsch, a St. Paul lawyer. "The ultimate result is nice, but they ended up getting a lot from the public.'

Such reactions didn't make it into the Chronicle, of course; including them might have taken too much space away from the paper's relentless campaign to build the Rockets a new basketball arena.
