    So you have nothing to say, then.

    Not if the news come from the pinochio channel.
    Maybe if we sell the white house and we fix an apartment in the DC, maybe americans can save some money right there.

    I would say that Spain has a weird sense of priorities, terrible taste in art and little idea of what a ceiling renovation should cost.

    I would also say that your thread title is totally misleading as it wasn't the UN that paid for this but Spain and only a fraction of the cost (absurd as it may be)- $633,000- was actually diverted from foreign aid money.
    Wasteful, yes but let's castigate the right entity here.

    Read it wherever you'd like; the substance won't differ.

    This also isn't the place to discuss your opinion of the source, rather the story.

    Which entity would that be?

    The Spanish government/people (they really are totally interchangeable, you see, as they share a pocketbook)?

    I also reviewed Skizo's links, and found they, like Foxnews, saw the U.N.'s funding the mural as questionable, no matter the amount.

    Besides all that, what, precisely, is amiss with the title of this thread?

    How does one separate out the U.N. in this story?

    Or is the need to take exception with Foxnews (as with shit-head, above) the overriding compulsion?

    The UN DIDN'T pay for the work...that's what the point is.
    Spain donated it and paid for a significant portion through private donations.

    A more accurate title would be "Hoi, all you fans of Spain".

    BTW, I feel no compulsion to "take exception" with Fox News.
    Any network that provides a platform for Sean Hannity is beneath my contemplation.

    You miss my point.

    I agitate against the U.N.

    Leave Spain to the others.



    You don't watch Foxnews, then.

    Except for Youtube, I mean.
