We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Critics slam Microsoft bridge as waste of stimulus money

31st March 2009

Read it.

“Pork barrel! Get your pork barrel here!”

Should a bridge that would connect two campuses at Microsoft’s headquarters be funded with $11 million from the federal stimulus package?

Or maybe Bill Gates’ pocket change?

Marchione applied for federal stimulus money after costs jumped on the project from $25 million to $36 million. Marchione says the increase in costs were due to a rise in construction prices and because the bridge will be built on a diagonal in order to connect Microsoft’s original East campus with a newer West campus that are split by a public highway.

Sounds fishy to me.
