First, the Denver Post took a stab at reporting our city budget cuts.
And Colorado Springs' Libertarian and conservative majority let out a collective moan. Who were those fancy-pants Denverites to judge us.?
Then came the New York Times. And the Springs' right wing was hopping mad. Who were those big-city snobs to pick on us?
Well, I hate to say it guys, but the world isn't done with us quite yet.
I just got a call from ORF, the main TV network in Austria. Guess what? They want to do a story on our budget cuts.
I'm sure that means it's time for another rant and a self-righteous editorial in the Gazette. Maybe it will also spur a few people to actually try to solve the city's long-term unfunded problems, like road, bridge and storm drainage maintenance. (Oh look, I made a joke.)
On the bright side for my GOP friends, Austria's a little late to this story. City Council is looking at restoring services this year, not cutting them.
