A Captiol Job

Talk about embarrassing. The word “Capitol” was misspelled on four glass doors at the new underground entrance to the refurbished Virginia statehouse. The letters “i” and “t” had been transposed, spelling “Captiol.”

The contractor will replace the signs at no cost to taxpayers. “It’s a warranty mistake; a tradesman’s error, “Rick Volz of Gable Signs & Graphics told Jeff Schapiro with the Times-Dispatch. “It was a rush job.”

The contractor will replace the signs at no charge to taxpayers. But that isn’t the end of the story. I’ve heard rumblings that the renovation of the state capitol building has experienced problems with other, much larger contractors working under incredible pressure to get everything done on time for the Queen’s visit. We may be hearing more about this in the not-too-distant future.

    Perhaps the people involved were victi… er, products of Virginia’s government schools, and all the good that has been done by protecting education funding against those wascally Wepublicans who would dare to use the General Fund to meet transportation needs?

    Next time get a worker and not a State Senator to check the spelling. Everyone know’s Virginia Senators are incapable of simple tasks.
