Bless the DC Council and it's shortsightedness!

In the same legislative session that they vote to fund a poorly managed and already over-funded school system an additional $1 Billion for school renovations, they kill the baseball stadium deal that would have served as the economic catalyst needed bring in the extra revenues to fund this measure! Bravo folks! Well done! Stick it to the DC taxpayers once again!
