The AIG to Barclays story has legs

From the Bergen Record (via DDDB):
AIG’s distribution of $8.5 billion in federal bailout money to Barclays Bank means Barclays should call off its $400-million naming-rights deal for a proposed Brooklyn arena, project critics charged Tuesday.

From Juan Gonzalez's column in the New York Daily News (via DDDB): If it ever gets built, we should call it the American Bailout Arena, for the old ABA, where the Nets got their start.

DDDB's press release has apparently been read.
