Historically speaking, our new hospital addition required about 12 years to achieve, from an idea, a donation, a break-the-ground ceremonial shovel, knock down a school, move houses, find a place to put a new school, batter heads with local leaders............until finally, doors were opened 8 months ago. And yesterday, as I stumbled and traipsed throughout a meandering path of new destruction (while I sipped my Latte') out come this minor missive:

First came the years
Of ballyhooed construction,
Celebrated with pomp
And parades,
Now we must undergo
Years of destruction,
Exposing our Brand
Of dignified charades.

According to the article in the Business News Journal, the whole kit and caboodle, costs $170 million dollars!
