Well... they probably won't be buying any booze with that money. Jersey barriers and police overtime pay is more like it.
Still! I agree. The only opposing case I can think of is that the inauguration probably brings some business to DC, and therefore tax revenue... but c'mon, this ain't the Olympics.Posted by: tom on January 10, 2005 03:47 PM
true, the tourism revenue we could potentially make would be good. but not if the hotel workers strike!Posted by: catherine on January 10, 2005 03:50 PM
I'd totally join you on your roof but I don't have a residency permit for your HIGH SECURITY zone. Neither do the homeless guys, so I guess they'll be cleared out for a few days.Posted by: susan on January 10, 2005 04:12 PM
maybe i can form a cabal with the homeless dudes to take over the convention center.Posted by: catherine on January 10, 2005 04:51 PM
I'll happily join in spitballing and homeless guy cabal forming. Black-Cat Bill should definitely lead that charge.Posted by: Michael on January 11, 2005 09:10 AM
Wait. I just let this all sink in. Now this is my outrage of the day. We're supposed to spend our homeland security funds on the president's party? I have a better idea, if this isn't a federal event worthy of being footed by federal funds, then HOLD IT IN CRAWFORD. He likes it better there anyway.
I'm going to write to my congressperson! Oh wait...Posted by: susan on January 11, 2005 12:05 PM
