Hi-Ho, Hi-ho

I'm pleased as punch that the federal government is beautifying the landscape in Culver City. I love a tree-lined boulevard as much as the next fellow. Especially when the net result is higher property value for my house/retirement fund.

But I'm trying to see the logic behind these large metallic signs.

How many construction workers did it take to dig the posting holes, pour the cement, assemble the framing structure, and erect this monstrosity? That's not even accounting for the transport, the printing, the paperwork needed to approve this vital conduit between the government and the governed?

How much money was wasted telling us our tax dollars are not being wasted?

In the interest of accuracy perhaps the top sign should read:
Putting America's Bureaucrats to Work.
