    ...and for some reason there is a certain beauty in it.

    I like the idea of making lemonade from lemons and apparently that tree was quite a bit nicer just few weeks ago but Wow!.

    If you're laying people off spending $20K on a tree is inappropriate but couldn't someone cut down a pine tree and donate it?

    But it worked out in The Charlie Brown Christmas and it probably will here too.

    I for one applaud their efforts and follow-through...not bowing to the negative Nellies.

    Spending $20 K on a lush, pretty tree when you have a $7 M defecit would have been more out of place.

    Indeed. I think that mayor did the right thing. And you can't help but love and accept that tree.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    you're a blockhead Charlie Brown!
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve
