    Oh oh. Can you hear the approaching thundering herd… of the budget hawks who want to know is those “grants” came from taxpayer money that should have been used to reduce their taxes?

    Larry, you might want to take a break from your budget blogging, The budget is not going to disappear from the face of political dialpogue any time soon. So ,how much could an invironment excursion cost and what could possibly be the future return on investing in our kids 8-13 who get a first hand look at the Bay and how youth may contribute more to the proposition that saving the BAY is a worthwhile thing to do since their ADULT counterparts have yet to make a dent in saving one of our most valuable resources?

    I think thats what Larry said. Just a few sentenci less and with alot more humor.

  • Martin (Marty) Work

    Sammy: I gave up assuming intelligence a long time ago. Larry is delivering BUDGET humor, and I’m applauding the value of taking our youth to a pollution area and a better idea of how important sdaving the Bay will be as their generation matures to see what the adults left with them to handle in coming years.

    I didn’t think my comments were intended to be humorous, so I’m not sure what your need for humor is and how it translates to addressing a singular important issue confronting this state and nation.

    If humor and sound bite conversations suits your editorial appetites, then I suggest the comics page might be more intertaining than anything I have say.
