You Pays Your Money...

...and you takes your chances. Several NYC members of Congress, to their credit, are trying to get federal funds for PCP cleanup. Good for them.

If they get the money,though, there's always the danger that NYC Schools Chancellor Joel Klein will stand up, complain bitterly his hands are tied by the earmarking of funds, and demand they be spent on more important things, like 80-million dollar computer systems that don't work, or no-bid contracts that leave kids stranded outside on freezing cold days.

After all, the CFE regulations say Mr. Klein has to spend money on reasonable class size and adequate education, and Mr. Klein has made it very clear he doesn't wish to squander valuable tax funds on such frivolities.
