So I have this friend with whom I occasionally debate politics in a bar. He drinks. I'd don't...anymore. My friend (we'll call him Terry Peak) tells me I'll have a good deal more response to m posts if I dispense with the decorum and start throwing flames.
Since this came up in a conversation about the city's consultant selection process, he suggested, that since nobody has responded to any of my posts about the city's engineering department.
Terry says Rapid City and South Dakota, for that matter, is populated almost entirely by stupid people because they don't seem to care that wildlife is crapping in their drinking water and that the only thing the city's engineers seem to do is write RFPs for local engineering firms.
He may be right. The city is spending millions upon millions of dollars for consulting fees and design services that should reasonably be assigned to our own city engineers.
Are we all stupid?
