Re "Subsidies may aid L.A. Live," June 14 Let me get this straight. Staples Center owner Philip Anschutz is the 41st richest man in America. He, through the Anschutz Entertainment Group, is investing about $2.5 billion in the L.A. Live project. Yet he still needs an additional $30 million from a state bond fund that was voter approved for low-income housing. Considering the size of the project, this amount is a rounding error. I don't recall language in the proposition presented to the voters that said the money could be used in furtherance of a private development, but I might be mistaken.

Anschutz Entertainment Group -- which owns Staples Center along with the Kings hockey team and Galaxy soccer team, among other assets -- has been put up for sale by billionaire Philip Anschutz. MSG would be a logical bidder for the teams and the venue, said Laura Martin, an analyst at Needham & Co. Inc. With a market capitalization of $3.1 billion, MSG would be too small to purchase all of AEG, she added.
