I'm sure there was a ton of security "beefing" after the Boston bombings. What I'm more curious about, however, is what we learned and are actively pursuing or implementing going forward.

Jason Harrison's curator insight, January 26, 2014 7:00 PM

I am honestly surprised we do not have metal detectors at all "major" sports stadiums in all American sports leagues. While incidents are not necessarily that high, it's much better safe than sorry.

 

After all, they've been doing this kind of thing at most larger concerts for some time as I recall.

Maybe nine out of ten economists agree, but one out of one here thinks along with the nine; subsidies only help owners and players, not the little people that have to pay for it.
