Hedging his bets
Why the surprise and disappointment with Chris Hansen’s anonymous contribution to a petition campaign to put Sacramento’s new arena to a vote? [“Hansen fans, foes differ over misstep,” page one, Aug. 18.]
After all, he is a hedge-fund manager. He was just hedging his bets.

I am writing about Jerry Brewer’s column this Sunday. [“Sadly, Hansen’s tactics not out of the norm,” Sports, Aug. 18.]
Since when do we exonerate Chris Hansen’s reprehensible behavior simply on the basis that everybody does it?
The last I heard, two wrongs still don’t make a right.
