Can't blame people of our city for becoming more cynical. 24% TXU rate increase. Gasoline prices through the roof. Skyrocketing property taxes. High crime rate and the highest inflation rate since 1980.
Can do city? Live large??...Think not!... But let's go ahead and get those much needed bridges built 'cause Lord knows we need 'em. All of this and we hold out that tomorrow will bring a brighter day.
Then, when you think it can't get any worse, you look at a city like New Orleans and 'presto' there goes all your bitching rights.
