Pembroke Pines Mayor Has Most Boring Stimulus Wish List Ever

With its 150,000 population, Pembroke Pines stands to get a nice, fat slice of the $10-12 billion coming to Florida from the economic stimulus package Obama will sign into law today. How will Mayor Frank Ortis spend his Obama bills? Not on hookers nor cocaine. Not on a U2 performance at city hall. Not a space station or even a monorail.

Nope, Ortis told The New York Times that the top item on his wish list is repairing the city's aging sewer lines. Booo! Monorail! Monorail! Monorail!
