Stimulus Money

This is where the stimulus money actually is being spent... on new curbs and sidewalks here in Chicago. In the modern version of "ditch digging" these are the transformational projects that seem to have been chosen. On virtually every street in my neighborhood they are breaking up the sidewalks and installing ramps or fixing curbs in the corner. And I was told that they were going to use these funds to fix the US transmission grid for electricity, but apparently that's "too hard".

Note also the mandatory "Green" label on the side of the cement mixer. Right...

Green cement. Now I have seen it all. As long as you paint it green I guess that makes it feel better.
