I'm amused, and somewhat annoyed, to know that DC has BOTH an Department of the Environment and an Office of Green Economy. Total waste of tax money.

I agree WashingtonDame.

Fenty has created a great number of boutique offices in District government to be run by his cronies.

Did you know that the DDOT has an entire administration dedicated to street cars? I mean, that is all they do all day at 100k+ per year.

Ohhh, better, did you know that your tax dollars are being used to pay for the harvard degree of its administrator, Scott Kubly (retroactively) meaning, the city is covering his bills for time before he even became a city employee.

Sweet, right?
