Smoke on the water sculpture

In Ann Arbor firefighters are losing jobs because the city has a huge deficit, but the city is spending more than $850,000 on a water sculpture.

I'll repeat: "When the taxpayer suffers significant economic reverses, police and fire protection are among the first services to be threatened by the adminocrat/union axis."

Add "arrogant and privileged" to that.

While there's no evidence at the link that the firefighters union contract(s) represent an imbalanced contribution to the budget deficit, one has to wonder.

All is not lost, though. If you have a fire in something mobile, like your car, you could drive it into the water sculpture.

They're cutting essential public services in Oakland, CA and in Ingham County, MI, too.
