Amen to that! It pains me to witness thinly veiled welfare programs that call themselves "stimulus". They’re nothing but government waste, pure and simple. Case in point is the unnecessarily extravagant "improvement" project of Stanley Blvd at Shadow Cliffs. Who ever sits on those 21 benches that are cluttered along that bike path? Why so much wood trim detailing on all the guard rails? I'm all for landscaping, but who decided to go so far overboard at the expense of my hard-earned (and unwillingly taken) tax dollars?
