Good lobbyists? by marvin (4.00 / 1) #3 Tue Sep 28, 2010 at 09:41:42 AM EST
Over the past 20 years, they've done a better job for the people who hired them than the politicians have for the electorate.

The canals in the Netherlands called by marvin (2.00 / 0) #8 Tue Sep 28, 2010 at 03:40:05 PM EST
They might have a prior claim.

Also, Winnipeg made it into the Guinness record books this past year, at 8.5km long, beating the Rideau. Considerable  controversy and bitterness arose.
