Yankees Go Home

The New York Yankees have discovered they need the approval of the National Park Service to build a new stadium on a plot of land they've picked out, the Washington Post's "Special Interests" column reports. The team has hired a Washington lobbying firm to help out in the effort. On behalf of the fans of every other American League baseball team (not to mention lovers of the history and tradition embodied in Yankee Stadium), I urge the Park Service to fulfill every stereotype of slow-moving government bureaucracy in handling this request.
