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.
