How's this for crappy:
Dallas' City Council decided to set the wheels in motion for a $550 million taxpayer-funded hotel to be attached to the city's convention center. What sticks in the craw of more than a few people is the fact that they did this without so much as a vote from those folks who will be ponying up the said $550 mil. A group has organized a petition drive to demand taxpayers be allowed to vote on this issue. I'm not holding my breath. We need a few more Sarah Palins in this country.
