You think that’s something? Sit down. Last year the foundation gave the museum $370,000. And on top of that the state legislature gave it another $400,000.
The foundation – its board is appointed by Governor Easley, Senate Leader Marc Basnight and House Leader Jim Black – spent almost as much on teapots – $220,000 – as it spent for scholarships to Community Colleges ($300,000).
That’s what passes for common sense in politics.
