2. No, you're not
Edited on Tue Jun-15-10 01:16 PM by NoNothing
EDIT: It doesn't have to be humongous projects. Often, the small local projects have the biggest impact. Building walking paths, public pavilions, landscaping. Simple tasks that just require some hard work.

In a local park near me, a walking bridge on a hiking path washed out last year and is still gone. Originally built by the WPA and CCC, there's now no money to replace it, and, to add insult to injury, the union declined to allow volunteers to fix it.

Meanwhile we have double-digit unemployment. *facepalm*
