Eric Zimmermann’s got questions.

I got answers!

President Barack Obama ordered a review of a publicity-photo shoot with one of the planes that serves as Air Force One that cost taxpayers $328,835 and caused a furor in New York City.

This does not, of course, take into account the cost that was inflicted on New York as a consequence of stopping work, causing evacuations which were hurried, frantic, and involved injuries, and wreaking havoc on the operations of city government.

There are people who need to lose their jobs over this debacle. They haven’t yet, however.
