Back to topic, it's amazing to me that a public entity can be sitting on $81 MM and have the gaul to ask for more.
As much good as I think BREC does, a message needs to be sent that they need to be better stewards of our money....

Well, you'll have to that issue up with you-know-who. I'm just trying to interject some information into the catfight.

Nope, absolute zero is -459.67 degF, although that number is suspect. May be a typo in the article.
