Attorney General Wants to do $3.2 Million of Sprucing Up
|They're also great for holding records -- musical, not legal.|
$3.2 million? Someone's been watching too much HGTV. Koster claims he doesn't want anything too spashy, he's just trying to bring the space up the level of a modest law office. That's great, but doesn't he know the state's facing a budget crisis? Here's what you do: Save that money for something vital, and get a couple guys who just got out of college to come over and re-do those offices in late Salvation Army.
A couple of wobbly-legged mismatched desks, some second-hand sofas, a few of those grandma lamps you can always pick up for $10 -- that's how a lot of us live anyway, dude. If you're representing us, you should try decorating like us.
Say, Mr. Koster: Have you ever seen a cubicle built out of milk crates? I'm not gonna tell you where I got the milk crates, what with you being the top-dog prosecutor, but I will tell you that they make excellent lightweight walls. Put a few of them on their sides when you're wiring them together and you have instant shelves. A couple box fans and some space heaters will take care of your climate control issues, too. ProTip: Buy the fans now, and get the space heaters when it gets hot -- it's cheaper that way.
We're all in this together, A-G Koster. Maybe you could spend like it.
