Little Wonder We’re in Trouble
We’ve reached a state of near parody:
While Political Scene was trolling the hallway outside Supreme Court Chief Justice Frank J. Williams’ office, in the Licht Judicial Complex, last week, something sparkly caught our eye.
A contractor perched atop elevated scaffolding was installing 23-carat gold leaf on the detailed ceiling trim.
The work appeared part of a minor renovation in the marble lobby.
The costly gold is imported from Italy, according to the worker. Its ornate packaging names the company: Giusto Manetti Firenze Goldbeaters, a Florence importer.
Chief Justice Williams most recently made the news by insisting that the governor and the public employee unions return to negotiations because “firmly believes that mediation and negotiation can produce a far better resolution.” Let it be written; let it be done… I guess.
