I swear I’m not making this up. There’s a petition drive underway in Cowtown to cap city spending on private plans to redevelop the Fort Worth riverfront. Says one petition supporter: "This is a boondoggle of the first order. It is irresponsible to spend money on a niche project that benefits the developers and not the citizens themselves."

I just hope they get better wording on their ballot than we did on ours.
