If God exists, God is certainly an ironist. This week's evidence: KJAM runs a blip on local boosters' continued hopes for adding two lanes to Highway 34 from Lake Madison through Colman to I-29. KJAM says "Highway 34 Four the Future" chairman John Goeman hopes any upcoming economic stimulus package would include 14 miles of concrete for Lake and Moody Counties.
Note: the biggest names behind this group—Goeman, Russell Olson, Jerry Johnson—are all leading local Republicans. Republican Governor Mike Rounds has placed the four-laner on his lengthy list of things for which we don't have the money. Local Republicans are thus pinning their hopes on a big government solution, an economic stimulus package to build infrastructure... which is exactly what Democratic President-Elect Barack Hussein Obama is proposing.
No wonder Obama won Lake and Moody Counties! Better paint that big eagle blue, John! ;-)
(Note: infrastructure stimulus is also what those darn European leftists in France, Germany, and Sweden are up to.)
