Luxury in the Bronx

The old Yankee Stadium has gone, and so has the sad web site that tracked the demolition. A pity, for some of the photographs were rather good. In the old stadium's demise there were plenty of reasons to be angry and / or sad, but sentimentality is a dangerous emotion. Oscar Wilde said: "a sentimentalist is one who desires to have the luxury of an emotion without paying for it."
