Innovative Progressive Government: Your Tax Dollars At Work
Now what could be wrong with this idea?
The $9 million plan that the court just blessed calls for Seattle to build a 75-unit apartment building and then stock it with chronic alcoholics.
Said tenants would get free, or reduced, rent, along with meals and access to alcoholism treatment.
The only rub is that those with the alcohol problem will not only be allowed -- nay, encouraged! -- to drink in their new apartments, they'll also be allowed to invite others in to drink with them!
What's next? An "honor bar" in their rooms?
