Surely there was something better that they could have spent the money on....maybe donate it to people who have lost their jobs and cant pay their
mortgage. Now that would have been useful....but no. Instead they waste 600k on an ugly piece of fecal matter under the premise of " Art".
" According to the Corps, the artwork was the city's idea. A city official, however, said that Alexandria officials didn't demand art, but just asked
that public artwork be included in the structure. What's more, the official said that the $600,000 is federal money, and that no Alexandria funds will
pay for the art."
Federal money? And I wonder who gets to float the bill....tax payers perhaps? Where do ya think Federal money is derived? Pathetic!
