Months ago I wrote a letter against the "rain tax." In it, I included some dialogue of what had to be a plausible conversation when the commissars discussed approving new developments in flood prone areas.
One of the lines went something like their approving building "Creekbed Estates" and "Lake Bottom Village" or some such nonsense, then asking why some developments keep being flooded.
Then recently I read that the developer's meat puppets have decided what to do with their ill-gotten tax money.
After due deliberation with their masters, and perfunctory wipe of their lips to remove a liberal coating of shoe polish, butt sweat, and drool, they have voted to spend the money.
Where? Spring LAKE and West LAKE; apparently, there is a flooding problem there. Can't figure out why, though. (You can't make this up.)
