The Oct. 4 Business article "Joining the D.C. team(s)" noted that Laurene Powell Jobs "is buying a significant stake in Monumental Sports & Entertainment, a sprawling $2.5 billion complex that includes the NBA Wizards, NHL Capitals and Capital One Arena." But it did not mention the first woman to become an owner in the National Basketball Association: Irene Pollin. The article said Abe "Pollin died in 2009. Pollin's widow, Irene, became the owner until [Ted] Leonsis and his partners bought the rest of the Wizards and the sports arena a year later." Having been an owner since July 14, 1968, I had one of the most wonderful experiences a person could have, as my husband's only business partner. Articles that don't provide readers basic information do readers a major disservice.
