MINNEAPOLIS - The city of Minneapolis is spending nearly $200,000 to sell something that would seem to sell itself: tap water. With her bottle of water in hand, Susan Davis was feeling hot and a little guilty. It would be great if everyone did drink the tap water, said Davis.

I guess we're not in a recession after all...
Don’t tell ME we don’t have any money......
When Americans join each other around the water cooler at work once again, we can declare the recession
75K for *1* website... wow, just wow..
I would have done the site for say 60K.. . or 10K for that matter.
What a waste!
Well let me tell you, Mayor Whybeck is spending $180,000 for NOTHING ON THE BACKS OF THE POOR AND CHILDREN!!!
How many poor and children could be fed for $180,000?
at least they’ll have plenty of delicious water.
Except for those summer weeks when it’s not.
Flush twice St. Cloud. Minneapolis is going to start drinking more.
whenever you see stuff like this you have to look for the kickback (and some hot PR babe spending a lot of personal time with a politician...)
