Deja Vu All Over Again

One definition of insanity is doing the same exact thing and expecting a different result.

Plattsburgh City is either insane or just plain stupid when it comes to its public library. Ignoring problems doesn't mean they will magically disappear.

Leaky ceiling. 3/12/11. Look familiar?

Check out this photo from March 23, 2010:

A year later and what has been done? NOTHING!

Deteriorating front steps to the library. 3/23/11. Look familiar? Check out this image from March 8, 2007:

Four years later and the steps are still falling apart. Band-aids don't work. Spend money now and fix the problems once and for all. Or let more taxpayer money be wasted again on half-ass patch jobs that cost much more in the long run.

Hey Luke - it's Kathy Cayea, former PPL reference librarian. Seeing these pics just reinforces for me how glad I am that I no longer work there!! thanks for making me smile..... said...

It looks like the steps were in much worse condition in the earlier photograph, perhaps they fixed them? You want them to rebuild the entire set of stairs every time pieces start to chip off?
