It has been an interesting and enlightening discussion that has carried on for about the past month in Emporia- regarding a plan by that city's politicians to buy and install 4 large stone monoliths ("monuments") at entrances to that Lyon county town.
Today the EMPORIA (KS) GAZETTE reports that regardless of the probably 80% public opposition to the expenditure- the city commissioners were going ahead with the rather curious project.
The ONLY change regarding the plan was how the commission was going to pay for the monoliths- which amounts to instead of robbing Peter to pay Paul- they'll take from Paul to pay Peter
Of the dozens of times I've passed but never stopped in Emporia but next time in that area I may actually stop...
At the city limits of the city to photograph the monsterous and unneccesary boondogles for photo morgue examples of Politicians Gone Wild with taxpayer-provided funds.
