In "San Diego Losing Its Football Team Spirit" (May 11), you cover the San Diego Chargers' desire to move to greener pastures in L.A. Let's see: a billionaire like Philip Anschutz angling a strapped L.A. County and reeling in L.A. citizens to buy him a new stadium. A team that managed to squeeze San Diego into buying unsold tickets (to the tune of $25 million) complaining it's not making enough money. And, spurning a $78-million civic investment in its own stadium, a team management that is ready to run. These people want to suck even more money from us. In an environment in which L.A. can't even afford to fund its own hospitals?
