the city burlington decided to build a "world class" pier at the bottom of brant st. to celebrate thier ability to spend tax dollars like a city ten times it`s size.
they hired some acid-drugged designres to draw up a design for the pier replete with a giant spiralling cock that no burlington resident i know would have agreed to.
the building of the thing was proceeding nicely until the famous giant crane accident. after which all manner of budgetary irregularities were revealed.
the contractor now refuses to continue work at the site and, with 2/3 of the money wated, the project sits unfinished.
the only good part of this is that the cock hasn`t been um, erected. yet.
