· OK. We know the bridge needs work before a school bus full of kids happen to be crossing it and the thing goes out on them. We also know that this is used quite a bit, even though it's a dinky little road. For all the hoo-hah it would take - not to mention money - to pay someone to tell us something that we already know, why don't we put some hustle into the project to get it done!


This week's question:

As local governments prepare their budgets, what is the silliest thing that elected officials are talking about using taxpayer dollars to fund?
