The good news about Tacoma's "budget crunch"
on 8/7/2008 @ 1:37pm
|The Tribune reported this morning that "the good times...may be gone" regarding the revenue situation at city hall. All I could think was, thank God the city council was able to give itself a huge health benefit package just before the news hit. Had the council waited any longer, this incredible perk probably would not have been affordable.

|Mr. Nachos, I am almost entirely computer illiterate or would be happy to provide the link. The story is on Page B1. My quote paraphrased the information found in the 2nd paragraph.|

|"The council postponed funding for the Museum of Glass that would have provided a truck to carry its mobile hot shop exhibit around the state."
Looks like people will still have to come to Tacoma to see the Hot Shop glass. I kinda see that as a good thing. Maybe once they're here, they will buy some glass, and some sandwiches, and some coffee, and some of this, and some more of that..........
