What money owed?  I lived in Arlington for 27 years and no money was 
owed by Bush/friends.  The citizens of Arlington financed the new 
ballpark with an additional 1/2 cent sales tax. Most of the revenues 
from the ballpark stayed with the Rangers.  Bush's initial investment 
was before the new ballpark.   He sold his share when the value 
escalated due to the new ballpark and associated revenues - parking, 
food service, etc.   Now the Dallas Cowboys are in the process of 
negotiating a similar deal with Arlington, except this time the Cowboys 
will pay for 1/2 the new stadium.
