But a more important reason: the $248 million bond will actually cost city taxpayers more than $437 million after you add the $189 million in interest. Why is City Hall putting this terrible deal on the ballot? Because they have mismanaged taxpayers’ money for years, and the chickens are coming home to roost.

    Speaking of boondoggles, the Headlines include a link to an article on the high-speed rail project. Gee, what a surprise, no private investment to get the system built!
