I would like to believe that people who steal money while wearing freshly pressed shirts and ties go to jail just like people who steal money while wearing ski masks.

So much I would love for that to happen. Iceland did it and their economy recovered, we didn't arrest the fraudulent bankers and because of that the current drive towards plutocracy continues and expands.

Spartan_Manhandler: Notabunny: In now-bankrupt Stockton, CA it was a baseball stadium.

Hey, you know what would be a great idea?  Let's build a baseball stadium situated so that half of the stadium gets to look at a fetid waterway, while the other half gets to stare directly into the sun.


Just ask the happy citizens of Ogdenville, Brockway, and North Haverbrook

EngineerAU: How's that for irony, the NCAA lets Miami get away with murder (metaphorically speaking) and they get walloped instead by the SEC.


If the university is south of the Mason-Dixon, the NCAA gives a pass.  (Miami, UNC, Alabama)

If the university is north of the Mason-Dixon, or isn't sufficiently "Southern", the NCAA lets forth the Apocalypse on the team and their record(Ohio State, Penn State, USC).

so would i but reality keeps intruding

It is criminal to steal a purse, daring to steal a fortune, a mark of greatness to steal a crown. The blame diminishes as the guilt increases.

Deathfrogg: All cities do this sort of shiat. It's part and parcel of how Mayors and City Councilmen run things. Legal Schmeagel, we need that new football stadium and my best campaign fundraiser is going to build it.


In now-bankrupt Stockton, CA it was a baseball stadium. This is from the conclusion of the Grand Jury's report (PDF) "History has shown that when ego takes the place of responsibility, when personal agendas replace actions for the public good, or when silence replaces the community voice, the public is not well served. A Mayor and City Council that prefers to not ask questions or demand complete and accurate information from its management, or to remain uneducated about the intricacies of the city's financial structure and operations can be more easily swayed by staff recommendations that are not in the public's best interest. This observation is not new. It has been brought to the community's attention by past Grand Juries."
