Waste of my money


I will refrain from making any snarky jokes about Liza Frulla, the Minister responsible for Status of Women giving $275,988 to the Bata Shoe Museum so that they can buy themselves a digital camera. If you want to see what they are going to be doing, click here. Ooh! I am so thrilled that I can get a close up on those fabulous red shoes!!!

But they gotta be kidding that $1.5 million in funding to develop digital cultural content is a good use of taxpayers money. I run Zeke's Gallery on a shoestring budget, with some beer thrown in for good measure, and here is the list of "digital cultural content" that I've been able to develop without $1.5 million in government funding.
