Honestly if we can house the homeless and sick in crappy buildings, why can we not hold court in a tin shed?

$60mil is pretty offensive.

Too much govt money goes into making things almost as cool as the coolest private companies - STOP TRYING TO COMPETE!!!!

They are private, I expect you to be utilitarian - if you want a slippery dip to your lunch room then go work for google.

That said, I have been in some amazing tin sheds, it just takes a bit of brains to make some amazing things from small budgets.

Forgot to mention: I have some difficulty believing that a goddam chair violates a fire code unless it's even older than me.

Having worked in Purchasing, I can tell what happened here:

Five weeks ago - Purchasing: "Give me the order with quantity and specification today, there's a three-week lead time for furniture deliveries"
Four weeks ago - ditto
Three weeks ago - ditto
Two weeks ago - Purchasing: "Just so you know, we missed the lead time so if we order now the furniture will arrive one week late"
One week ago - ditto

Today - Boss: "Where the hell is our furniture???" Purchasing "(Facedesk)"

Does this courthouse replace an old courthouse? So move some stuff from the old courthouse over till you can restock the coffers and buy some new tables and chairs or whatever.
