My Godfather was a builder in Chicago and used to complain about this all the time. And this was 15 years ago. Apparently, this is a common problem that causes many people to turn a blind eye...as long as the appropriate profit is made.

No, he said it. It was clearly a slip of the tongue and meant something else but after the repubs ran with the "you didn't build that" line, I feel no obligation to ignore the hilarity of this misstep.

I traveled to Seattle over Thanksgiving and found the city to be lovely--if a bit wet--and ate far too many excellent meals. Too bad I didn't ask a townie what I should do while I was there; judging by Slog I missed out on the local pastime: bitching about guns, pitbulls and award shows.
I'll just have to take in the local color the next time I'm in town.
