Does NFL really want cold, snowy Super Bowl?

The coldest weather for an “outdoor” Super Bowl was the low-40s several decades ago. With “indoor” Super Bowls in domed stadiums, it’s been a comfortable 70 or so inside even if it was in the teens and snowing outside. In 10 days or so, records could be set with Super Bowl XLVIII set for MetLife Stadium – an outdoor venue in New Jersey!

Letters to the Editor

Jeptha Clemens writes to note that he’s one of many of the “47 percent” who do pay taxes, while Richard G.
