And on the subject of government idiocy

Remember the Kelo decision? Remember how it had to be done 'for the good of the community' due to all the tax revenue that it would bring in?
As you know, Susette's little pink house and the homes of her neighbors were seized and destroyed through phony eminent domain scams in a city landgrab sanctioned by the U.S. Supreme Court.

New London promised to put a glitzy new private development project on the land, but now, nearly four years after the ruling and $78 million in taxpayer money spent, literally nothing has been built on the land; it remains vacant, the neighborhood bulldozed.

What was that line, "It's terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged"?
