Just a diversion from our regular programming.
Forget HAM- we have home-grown pork barrelling.
The missing women's inquiry is costing us $80K a day in lawyers fees!!
WTF! - the police screwed up. Admit it. Move on. Give the money to the families.
But NO we have to have a media circus, with everyone lawyered up at the tax-payer's expense including apprently Mr Greenpsan (who represented that up-standing citizen Conrad Black)- at over $1000/HOUR!
So far they have spent $4 million on this circus, most of it going to lawyers, with no end in sight.
That's on top of the trial which ate through untold Millions to tell us that Picton-the-devil was gilty and now we have to pay to hear how the police didn't screw up.
Right next to the Sun article on the missing women legal expenses is another article about heart surgeries at Childrens Hospital. Do you think we could spend our money a bit better on the latter than the former.
End of rant.
Fun with quant: MS Business Conditions edition - Marketwatch recently reported that Morgan Stanley's Business Conditions Index had deteriorated to levels last seen during the 2007-08 financial crisis. Wow...
