Mr Tact you may be thinking too highly of those who govern, especially those who govern at the state and town level. For the most part these folks are either dull-headed, or mercenary, or both.
Think highly of them? Ah, no. Actually my opinion is that 99% of all politicians are crooks -- that number is probably an exaggeration but it conveys my feelings on the subject. However, the constant drone from both the left and right -- especially in the last 5-10 years has driven me into apathy.

Specifically in the case of the loan to .38 Studios, in hindsight and on the surface it seems insane. However, what would people's opinions be if the game had done so well the company paid off the loan early? Sure maybe the likelihood of that was small -- I'm just illustrating a point. This decision was not made in a vacuum and I doubt few if any of the people throwing around opinions here know the whole story -- I certainly don't.

Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.
