“Do I contradict myself? Very well then I contradict myself, (I am large, I contain multitudes.)” So wrote Walt Whitman in “Song of Myself.” We on the Star Tribune Editorial Board are not beyond contradictions. Collectively, we believe in the long-term community value of the new Vikings stadium. Collectively, as expressed in our May 14 editorial, we’re struck by the stadium design that was unveiled last week. But as individuals, not all of us were struck in the best sense of the word.
