Budget Shortfall - Duh

Virginia legislators spend over $140 million building Richmond's version of the Taj Mahal and then wring their hands over the "budget shortfall." Gee, what a surprise. Of course, they're wanting to bleed the Commonwealth's "citizens" once more for their extravagance. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Yes, I favor historical preservation, but if you dig into the details of what was done at the Capitol Building, you will discover that it's a pretty cushy dig for our masters. In their renovation, they actually destroyed much of the original grounds and history there.

That's exactly what it is. One of the excuses, er uh, reasons for the "renovation" was security and terrorism concerns.
