I have to admit, after the news of AIG bonuses over the weekend, this looks bad. In fact, it annoys me. Microsoft is apparently getting $11 million dollars for a bridge to connect the two halves of its campus.
I get that this will be an improvement to the area, it’s (I think) spanning a highway, it’s an improvement to the area, but Microsoft has no need of this. I’m a Microsoft shareholder, but with the economy doing poorly, and Microsoft making money, should the public be financing any of this?
A bad call by Steve Ballmer and company to even lobby for this.
