    Does it really matter? No, it doesn't, but never the less, I'll explain why.

    Part of the point here is symbolic. Gubmit, be it state, city, or federal, taxes to much. So any opportunity the citizentry gets to lower taxation, should be taken advantage of. With that in mind, the article is an example of gubmit tax "revenues" being wasted. Therefore the cries that chaos would ensue if we lowered the thievery, is flat retahdid.

    Since the above is too sensible for people to understand, I'll post the numbers, which are provided by Mumbles "my paesan" Menino himself.

    this would be the very definition of wasteful spending.

    OMFG! We've now agreed twice today, and it's not even 3 o'clock yet! This could be a sign that Armagedon is near. Where's Lifer? Is this how the Book of Revelation begins? :D

    Perhaps if Boston took some fiscal responcibilty and reined in liberal polices, most of the people from Boston, would actually stay in Boston.
