Re: “The Price of Art

I know why it costs so much to “Run” Last Thursday. It is the Police Bureau’s cash cow. It is not unusual to see 4 to 6 uniformed police officers per block. By observation, I figure there are others in plain clothes. This is in addition to a number of Event Staff and rent-a-cops. Additionally, when I was leaving the July event I noticed a parking enforcement employee on duty after 9 pm. The only reason Last Thursday doesn't cost more is that the other city bureaus haven’t figured out how to cash in on the prize. I will not be surprised when I see mobs of Water, Parks, Housing and Fire Bureau personnel pulling in the overtime at Last Thursday.
