how did I miss this?

LA is considering moving towards open source software to save almost $6 million per year in software licenses. the council members proposing the shift are hoping te funds will go towards hiring more police. I know LA has a pretty poor citizen to cop ratio compared to denser cities such as ny, but it seems it might also be worthwhile considering spending some of those funds on social services, which have been hammered the last few years under the Bush regime. but I supposed more cops is an easy way to sell the proposal, so if that's what it takes, I'm all for it. take that, Microsoft.
