That's how much the city has agreed to pay German artist Herbert Dreiseitl for a three-piece water sculpture that would go in front of the new police and courts building right by the City Hall. </div></div>

It happens everywhere.
Our school system is laying off teachers, but we are going to extend our 8 mile long light rail train by 2 city blocks...at a cost of $9,000 per <u>foot</u>!.

Big, new, shiney things are more sexy than essential services. Especially when you are spending other people's money!
