Davidson mismanaged Grand Prix, but he has a point

While I agree that Jay Davidson mismanaged the Baltimore Grand Prix and was a poor CEO, he does make one valid point ("City must do more to support Grand Prix," Dec. 4). Other cities are succeeding at running these races by contributing more public money to it than Baltimore is.

The reluctance to do so clearly shows how Baltimoreans have a narrow minded, small town attitude.

Meanwhile, we throw money at Hollywood for productions like "Homicide" and "The Wire" that do nothing but destroy the city's image.

Why do you think so few people move to Baltimore? Poor image of the city.

The positive PR an event like this provides for the city is something money cannot buy.

Yet instead we're throwing money at bad PR.
