    My taxes went up so Lansing Nerdpublicans could send some of that $1/2 Billion surplus over to England?
    "The carpeting is very worn out and at some point you can't keep stitching up holes and sealing seams with duct tape," Tim Bowlin, director of the House Business Office, said in a statement. "Some areas have been repaired multiple times and are literally falling apart."

    British company Brintons was selected for the job as the low bidder among six proposals. The company also provided carpet installed during the Capitol restoration project that began in 1989, though it was under a different name at that time. The company's office in Atlanta, Ga. is handling the installation.

    There's at least one Michigan company with experience in specialty high-profile government carpeting: Cascade Township-based Scott Group made rugs for the Oval Office for Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.


    Good luck with that bonehead move.

    When I was back in range of Detroit there was a report on WWJ about this.

    That's not the interesting part.

    The interesting part was that they had a republican legislator (right now his name escapes me) defending spending the money, while a democratic legislator (ditto) was in favor of putting off this "necessary" expenditure for at least a year.

    The republican claimed that it's all part of the "necessary" upkeep of the Capitol.

    Here's what is wrong with his logic:

    • Leaking roof...okay.

    • Broken plumbing...I'll give you that, too.

    • Worn out and leaking windows...they had better not be after begin replaced as recently as they were.

    • Worn out carpeting so that you can preserve you sense of vanity and entitlement...not even close!
