Vox Populi

You are correct in that it's probably legal but apparently no one in local government cares if it's the right thing to do or if it is an ethical thing go do.

Vox Populi

The hits just keep on coming, in the current IBJ we find that the mass transportation group is pushing out a massive pr campaign to push new taxes for the support of mass transportation and in today's Star we hear from visit indy what a success the Stooper Bowl was. Funny in my book losing 700-800k on the Stooper Boowl isn't a win and we don't seem to be booking the thousands of people into hotels or growing the number of conventions promised. As to the mass transportation pr what you won't hear is the true cost of the project or the amount of dollars that must be spent to subsidize mass transportation, or what new TIFs will occur to enable mass transportation. What you will hear is the usual Biased Sludge about how a world class city needs mass transportation or that the city can't function without mass transportation and that it will only cost a few dollars a month to provide mass transportation to the masses. They will quote some low cost per month, kind of like a car dealer will do, to divert focus on the total project cost. You know just like the I-69 extension will only be a billion dollars but is now 2.5 billion dollars.
