Why are people so dumb?

I guess I need to save up my rants about a particular thing (a radio programme or whatever) and then post them all at once.

Some guy called in and said something to the effect of: “Why are you spending $5 million dollars on Raspberry Park? Where are your priorities?”

To his credit, Mayor Coleman answered the question(s) correctly. The gist of his response was that you need to build the whole city, including the amenities that make it a more desirable place to live. A city is more than just a collection of individual components – its residents, physical infrastructure, schools, commerce and shopping, industry, parks, and so on. It’s a real example of synergy between multiple elements to create something greater.
