No Money, What The Hell, Give Jacko A Big Sendoff

This is insane.

From Fox:

The City of Los Angeles is likely to face costs of $3.8 million related to Tuesday’s public memorial service for singer Michael Jackson, higher than a previous estimate of $2.5 million, Los Angeles City Councilman Dennis Zine told MarketWatch late Monday, citing new figures from the city’s chief legislative analyst. The estimate accounts for a range of costs to cover overtime pay for police officers and firefighters, paramedics, and information-technology workers, among other public service providers, said Zine.

If we can’t discipline ourselves enough, at a time when the nation generally and California most certainly face financial ruin, to abstain from excesses such as this then we deserve our fate.
