Shovel Ready in San Francisco - $200,000+ to move a plant!
This belongs in Ripley's Believe it or Not! What a triumph for the Obama stimulus. The location of the manzanita plant is being kept secret due to fear that plant enthusiasts may flock to see it and damage it by trampling. However, I think the real fear is that taxpayers may descend on it and kill it for revenge. But hey, they could replace it with a plant from the nursery (like the one on the right) for $18 or so. Don't you just love a government that will knock down your house in a minute to build a shopping mall, but spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to move a darn plant!
