It's not just the City of Cincinnati that seems to delight in crony capitalism, picking the winners and losers in the "free market," forcing taxpayers to pick up the tab, but also our supposedly more conservative suburban brethren.
In the Village of Wyoming, the town fathers are planning on subsidizing a local bistro to the tune of $713,000.
This is Wyoming's own version of Solyndra. Why the hell is the Wyoming City Council in the business of subsidizing a restaurant? It's not like this residents of this affluent community can't afford their own brie and Chardonnay.

Council member Vicki Zwissler is taking the lead in opposing the spending.
However, if the Village persists in this wasteful expenditure, local taxpayers will take comfort in knowing that “the design is intended to be light, open and airy, and feel as if it’s an extension of the park,” according to Community Development Director Terry Vanderman.
COAST says: Zwissler has this one right.
And COAST intends to name names when the final vote is taken.
