'We want the services. We're willing to pay for them, if they lead to good results. Yet whether our gargantuan investment is paying off is a question no one has an answer to. Hardly anyone even bothers to check. As far as much of the city is concerned, ignorance is bliss.'
Wouldn't it be great if there were some mechanism for informing people of things like large-scale government waste and mismanagement? Say, a daily or weekly bulletin or newssheet which detailed stories like this which were then distributed by electronic or paper means to the population at large?
We can only dream.
