Taking care of tax money

While driving to work this morning, I saw a "Kandayohi County" vehicle apparently going into Minneapolis; a one ton Ford van with no seat occupied except that of the driver. No seats were removed for cargo, either.

94 miles each way. 12 miles per gallon. Thanks, Kandayohi County, for our attention to the best interests of the taxpayers and the environment. You're almost worse than a Prius.

I suppose it's remotely possible he was going to bring seven people back from Minneapolis......

Maybe, but why not simply leave the van there instead of making an extra trip? (it certainly did not have the signs of being equipped for prisoners, and they don't like students to be transported in 'em anymore, either)

Ah, but with a name like Kandiyohi you just can't stay mad at it for long. :)
