In most cities, a 40-year-old building is hardly considered to be old. In fact, in most places, that's considered downright modern.
Not here in luxurious Fairfax County, Virginia, apparently. The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, according to the Washington Post, is considering razing the building pictured here because it's "not worth renovating."
At least, according to Sharon Bulova, the spendaholic Democrat who replaced Gerry Connolly as the Chair of the Board this past election. Whom just happens to also chair the County's budget committee.
Of course, considering that this is also the County that built itself a $1 billion golden palace on a whim (with the laughable excuse that such a modern office space would "attract" businesses to the area), maybe this isn't surprising—but as someone who will be directly taxed for this monstrosity that I'll never use, I'm more than annoyed.
How many billion dollar buildings does Fairfax County need, anyway?
One's enough, Fairfax. Learn to live with what you've got—That's what the rest of we Americans are having to do during these tough times.
You're not any better than the Citizens, after all.
