Why Not Just Give Your Checkbook To Chimps?
The City Clowncil authorized the expenditure of $150 million for a new police headquarters.
Let's assume, to be generous, that the decision was reasonable.
But lo and behold, every few months, the price keeps climbing, and the Clowncil keeps approving it without comment.
Current cost estimate: $396 million. Er, maybe $420 million.
Would YOU let a contractor pull that on you? Hay-ell no!
But the Clowncil doesn't care, because, after all, it's only YOUR money, not theirs.
