Priorities, Priorities
Good to see Missouri has its priorities in order.

1: Funding private development that will turn empty land into empty buildings:
    Of the $387 million construction cost, public aid is projected to account for $116 million, with the state's share at nearly $30 million and the rest coming from the city and special sales tax districts.
2: Critical repairs to infrastructure:
    State highway officials have barred large trucks from a mid-Missouri bridge over the Osage River after an inspection prompted by the fatal Minnesota bridge collapse revealed a badly deteriorating steel beam.

    . . . .

    The entire 1,000-foot bridge is scheduled to be replaced in 2010 at a cost of $9.4 million.

To say Noggle, one first must be able to say the "Nah."
