    Design and taste are out of Rob Ford’s comprehension.

    How long would a cheaper chair last? The original chairs lasted since 1965.

    So, our childish, crude, bullying asshole of a Mayor is deliberately muddying the facts in this latest example of evil City Hall “gravy” solely to inflate his own reputation? And this immediately after he single-handedly engineered a prohibitively expensive subway boondoggle that’s never going to adequately serve the constituency it’s supposed to help, and will take something like 30 years to pay off? I gotta say, I can almost admire the sheer, hypocritical gall of the man.
