How much did you say?

According to this post Via Ace the city of Memphis is paying over two million dollars a year to "rent" the pandas. Our current contract with the Chinese runs out in 2013. Look I love our zoo and I also like the pandas but two million dollars?? I wonder if this money could be better spent. I have not seen anywhere if the pandas draw enough to pay for themselves or are we just trying to "keep up with the joneses"?

I suppose if I have no proof of an issue then I will let it lye but I will look into this and see if any concrete numbers have been done.
