Take the latest news out of Bristol:
Train Station Open House Tuesday$5 million! How in the hell did the local government come up with that kind of money - money that could have been better spent by employers in the area to keep layoffs from occurring right and left - to renovate a train station that is no longer in use? Has everyone gone stark raving mad?
By the Bristol Herald Courier Editorial Board
Fresh off a $5 million renovation, the Bristol Train Station is opening its doors to the public for an open house today from 4:30-8:30 p.m. If you’ve never been to see this historic site, get cracking and get down there this evening.
The 106-year-old station is on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, train station board members will serve as guides. And Tim Buchanan, a local historian, will have a display that focuses on the train station’s history. [link]
Well, it can be said with a high degree of confidence that one individual has certainly gone mad. Professor Moriarty kind of mad.
Where'd that money come from?
A big chunk of it came from the federal transportation budget.
And who was the idiot who acquired it from desperately needed transportation funds?
We're doomed. Everyone pack your bags. Flee. Spare yourself. Git while the gittin's good.
For the love of God. $5 million for an abandoned train station.
And soon Obama is going to hand Boucher $1,000,000,000,000 to play with.
