Dirty politics and decrepit strip malls
Decatur Metro posted a link today to a site that ranks Georgia as the most corrupt state in the US in terms of ethics, transparency and accountability in state politics.
In the comments section, a poster named There’s a Parking Lot in the Square writes this golden nugget that I just had to share:
All you have to do is look around at the never ending, hideous, suburban sprawl and you will come to the conclusion that there is a massive amount of cronyism in the State of GA. There was obviously no thought put in to quality of life/environmental factors, only who could line his pockets more by building yet another decrepit strip mall.
Here’s the full piece on state government corruption.
