UPDATE 3/2/11: Dé-jà-to-the-f’n-vu Edition
After tripping over an unexpected $16M in their budget right around this time last year, KOAT Reports today that APS has $15M more in their budget than previously accounted for.
We wonder what the sneaky contract extension seeking, six figure salaried, take home car fleet driving, board and administration of Superintendent “Harry” Winston Brooks will add to their pocket lining in light of this new development.
We say TAKE A PAY CUT Harry Winston & crew – there’s still $26M and miles to go…before you should be able to sleep.
Okay, ‘extra’ is a word and ‘money’ is a word but nay shall the two be combined. Ask anyone whether their account be empty or overfloweth – there is no extra. In the same way that a moment with a loved one lost can never be regained once passed – extra time too is impossible.
It’s time to put these sayings to bed. We thought about giving them a funeral like the ones for the ‘n‘ and the ‘r‘ words, but a gentle bed time story should suffice. Our Twitter friend Cody H has obliged us ceasing the Use Abuse of the phrase in his daily tweets.
So, nighty night ‘extra money’ we’ll see you just before the return of Christ and right after the apocalypse. In the mean time many happy returns to you and yours during this our time of Recession, because ain’t no such thang’ as extra money – unless you’re the Albuquerque Public School District.
