Bubble Monuments

boondoggle-logo2Well, Houston has its share of boondoggles, such as the Metro Light Rail, the $100 million Bayport Cruise Ship Terminal (which has never docked a cruise ship since its completion in 2008) and the continuing dither over what to do with the obsolescent Astrodome.

But I have to admit, in terms of sheer number and scope, Houston’s boondoggles don’t come close to matching those of Las Vegas (H/T Calculated Risk). Check out the photos.

I wonder if a bus tour of these mothballed projects has been put together yet?
