Opening Arguments

Gift horse. The mouth

City Council President Tom Smith has gone and spoiled everything by peeking behind the curtain of the government expansion stimulus program (you'll have to watch the video to seem him saying it):

There will be money coming in to schools and police departments to help hire new people to do certain programs. But when that money runs out . . . they're calling that job creation, becasue the local taxpayers will keep funding those new positions.

So we'll get $50 million or so over the next three years and after that be obligated to spend -- who knows how much? The gift that just keeps on giving.

This storyline is starting to remind me of the plot for the recent Swedish vampire movie, "Let the Right One In." Sooner or later the vampire's companion gets to make the "involuntary transfusion" that kills him 'cause, after all, he's such a nice guy.
