scratching my head again

this is so incredible that a few lines of it are enough
i have no paintings to illustrate this

this is yesterdays news but has me so baffled that i must print it. im sure most have seen it in the paper.

the jefferson county commisioners have approved a recommendation to purchase 6 garbage cans ['chase park' litter receptacles] for the new bessemer county courthouse .. at a cost of $8341 [$1439 each]....when in the same breath they say 'the county doesnt have the money to staff the courthouse'..never mind everything else they cant afford.
these are adult .. and women that we ...i sadly say... elected..and that we pay to make decisions for us.

i dont generally write too much about politics but.......

i welcome comments and suggestions

From the promise land in Lipscomb Alabama
Where golden eagle table syrup and buffalo rock
Flow freely
And the train whistle blows

I agree that it is a very expensive purchase especially in these poor economic times. But these are commercial cans that will last many years. What are we going to put at the courthouse an old metal barrel? Or a big ol' Rubbermaid can?
