Detroit —Detroit Public Library officials say finances have grown so bad they could close most neighborhood branches, but in a few weeks plan to unveil a revamped wing of a main library that even administrators say spares few expenses.

The South Wing is stocked with 20 yellow and orange European lounge chairs that cost $1,092 apiece, artistic pendant light fixtures and two alcohol-burning fireplaces.

This is what happens when "useful idiots" vote in elections. They elect those that promise them the most stuff, in spite of the consequences. Unfortunately, I don't think this mentality will ever change in the city of Detroit.
