An overhead projector's pretty sweet, but why stop there? We're thinking
of leasing office space that faces the JumboTron at Washington Nationals
stadium. The Nationals are behind on their rent, so paying for use of
the JumboTron should be a cinch. But we still have questions regarding
JumboTron display resolution, office window cleaning, haze on Code
Orange days, etc.
