The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Who's edits the newsletter?

Transformations, August 2004, page 7MAPS for Kids is the successor to the original Metropolitan Area Projects plan that renovated so much of downtown Oklahoma City. The plan, funded by a temporary sales tax (seven years), will take ten years to implement completely. Half a billion dollars will be pumped into Oklahoma City Public Schools, and $150 million more into suburban districts that overlay parts of the city. The Chamber of Commerce has begun sending out a quarterly newsletter called Transformations, to advise us taxpayers where the money is being spent. From the looks of this sidebar on page seven, apparently none of the $650 million went to proofreading.

"Who's Manages"?

Sounds like the author of this pamphlet (or whatever) could use a few remedial classes in those same schools they are renovating.

Ahh- darn edit conflicts. I'll bet it said "Who's managing the money?" in the previous draft.

Err.. Not at all. I wasn't really commenting on your comment. ;-)
