Sympathetic Coverage for Austin Bomber Mark Conditt
National outlets muddy moral picture
News Story  March 29, 2018, by Mary Tuma

Newsweek had relatives defend him as "low-key" and "peaceful." The most cringeworthy headline came from The Wall Street Journal: "Austin Bombing Suspect: Home-Schooled College Dropout Known for Dry Wit."..."

The city races, of course, are way down at the bottom of a statewide ballot, and will also include bond propositions (and others) that require some preparation (more on that later) for an off-year national election that should generate much more interest (and turnout) than those normally do..."

"...These assume the value of the land to be $29.5 million – based on a 2016 third-party appraisal commissioned by the city – with an additional "improvement value" of $200 million based on PSV's estimated construction cost for the stadium. With an estimated value of $229.5 million and a "moderately conservative" tax rate increase of 6%, the calculations show the main taxing entities in the area (City of Austin, Travis County, Austin Independent School District, Central Health, and Austin Community College) could lose out on about $6.4 million in tax revenues over the first five years of the deal..."
