One would think hundreds of millions of dollars could have prevented this.

Flooded University Boulevard ramp to reopen
By Rocky Mountain News July 5, 2006

A storm-flooded northbound ramp from I-25 eastbound is expected to open within the hour, the state Department of Transportation said at 7:45 a.m. this morning.
Crews are on the scene pumping out the water now.
The ramp was closed since last night’s downpour put several feet of water in the low ground.

Screw the question of how much money illegal immigrants are costing Colorado (approximately $66 million annually for federally mandated programs according to The Bell Policy Center). Note that the state budget is at about 6.5 billion. With hundreds of millions spent on T-Rex, you would think that they could have at least built a highway that doesn't flood. For crissakes, hasn't the University Blvd. ramp been open for mere weeks? Here's my recommendation to the T-Rex contractors - hire illegals. They will produce a quality product for a fraction of the cost and get the job done right the first time. Ultimately, this will save millions of tax-payer dollars and offset the drop-in-the-bucket services they recieve now.

I see the hate-off has begun under the golden dome.

Exxon Mobile reported $8.4 billion in first-quarter profits in April 2006. Check my math but based off a 13 week quarter (52/4), that is about $65 million a week in profits.
