Fun With Numbers...

I appreciate the mathematical lesson from last night. (I wasn't aware of the fact that 38K is greater than 1.6K.)

I do not know who John Salah is, though I'd like to find out. (I also do not know who Keyser Soze is.)

What I do know is how to have some FUN WITH NUMBERS! Lost in the Mercury's telling of the sad story of a man punished for his charitable giving are some of Chuck's more... interesting/fun... reimbursements:

- $100.00 - Chris Martinon Karaoke Fundraiser - 7/30/02
Who is Chris Martinon? I forgot --- what public benefit did this outing serve? Which song do you think he sang that night:
a) "Can't Buy Me Love"
b) "Gold Digger"
c) "Mo' Money, Mo' Problems"
d) Any song written by CHEAP TRICK

- $4 - Airport Parking Fee (three times!)
Doesn't it cost more than $4 just to copy the receipt, print out the expenditure form, and process the checks?

- $20.57 - "Introduction to Conversatioanl Filipino for Non-Filipino's"
Critical to his role as a City Councilmember. Absolutely critical. Maybe he shoulda spent more time reading the Reed Reforms (maybe focus on putting service above oneself, for starters).

- $267.92 - Kinko service for making enlarged mock checks for "Missing Mayor" ceremony - 11/25/02
What the heck was the "Missing Mayor" ceremony? I don't remember Gonzo being missing in the first place.

- $70 and $150 - Entrance/attendance fee for SJ Chamber of Commerce's Legends and Leaders Dinner (one of which was honoring Arnold Schwarz-y) - 10/19/04 & 11/14/03
The Chamber is backing Reed for no reason but his credentials... not because of his networking/relationships.

- $55 - Pat Dando Dinner - 11/14/04
Pat is the boss of the Chamber. Again: the Chamber is backing Reed for no reason but his credentials... not because of his networking/relationships.
