I hesitated even posting this, because there was never any question in the first place other than the one created by The Blade

For some reason, the Blade has run numerous editorials criticizing Cedar Fair / Cedar Point for their business practices, especially admission price increases. I find it ironic and quite amusing that the Blade - which is now trying to force extreme wage concessions on its unionized workers through a lockout - would criticize how a profitable business operates when by the Blade's own admission it is hemorrhaging money.
