Meaning taxpayer dollars, that was somehow not pointed out. Correct me if I'm wrong - I am sure one of you will!
On a side note, the Post-Gazette isn't allowing comments linked to facebook on this one. It's fine to allow the most bigoted, sexist remarks when there's some poor schmuck who pulls some kind of Darwin award crime; it's fine to allow thousands of self-righteous, guilty-until-proven-innocent condemnations of somebody. Partisan, teabagger misinformation - just dandy. Where is any honest journalism in print or TV in Western PA? Internet sites like pennlive and here seem to be all there is left.
