A short while after hitting the publish button I heard from Elbertt Elmerr via a blog comment...
Elbertt Elmerr has left a new comment on your post "Will Slow Progress Of America's Biggest Boondoggle Result In Contract Default? ":
Fearless Leader scoffs at your facts and figures.
Click to enlarge if you have the stomach for it.
When you click to enlarge you are greeted with a big version of the above photo. That is J.D. Granger at the podium. I am assuming this was at the extravagant ceremony celebrating the arrival of the spaceship, I mean work of million dollar art, you see behind J.D.
I am assuming the Fearless Leader, to whom Elbertt Elmerr refers, is J.D. Granger. I do not know what facts or figures are being scoffed at.
You have to admit, after Boondoggling along for most of this century, it is rather impressive that all America's Biggest Boondoggle has to show for the effort is a flood destroyed wakeboard park, one of three simple bridges under construction, a roundabout under construction.
And this beautiful million dollar work of art.
And maybe one or two other products. Like convincing people to have floating beer parties in the Trinity River.
How big a ceremony will we be having if one of those three simple little bridges is ever completed, connecting the Fort Worth mainland to an imaginary island? I suspect that will call for a week long city wide celebration.
With fireworks and TNT explosions....
