from Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch, From this perch in Columbus, one can only applaud the dopes conspiring to extend the NHL lockout, now in its 70th day.

According to a 2008 study by the John Glenn School of Public Affairs at Ohio State, the Blue Jackets and Nationwide Arena have generated in excess of $2 billion in economic activity since the arena doors opened. By this point, they are directly responsible for more than $1 billion in spending by out-of-town visitors — an important figure as it represents “new money” entering Downtown. continued
