So, the bridge to no where, that no one uses; the waste of millions over Hiway 14 got some sort of award from an outfit no one has ever heard of and that no one here locally cares about.
So what does our local paper do?
Lose its collective mind.
This ribbon of concrete over another ribbon of concrete. It's rarely used by anyone. That one dime of taxpayer money was wasted on this is but a symptom of the criminal excess our government engages in on a regular basis, and that the paper cheerleads for on an equally regular basis.
It was a shame to waste those millions on something we neither needed or wanted. But it's a mere pre-curser to the obscene waste of billions this same paper wants to jam down our throats in the form of loot rail and an uneeded, unwanted bridge replacement.
But this paper supports both wastes of money, so any time anyone says something nice about it, we can expect to see this kind of self-flatulation as a result.
The only award this carbuncle deserves is the "total waste of money" award. But if Joe's Garage were to give it an award, you could bet that would be front page news as well.
