So Uplands Park - the itsy-bitsy county municipality at Natural Bridge and Jennings Station roads - has "lost" $90,000, according to last night's report by Lyndsay Bramson of KMOV Channel 4. 

Sorry - city officials lost $90k? Their polity is the size of Bed, Bath & Beyond. How distracted are these people?

4. Blew it on a "fuck-it-all" sugar binge at Cold Stone Creamery.

3.  Matching team jackets for Ride of the Century 2012.

2. Spent it during that weekend in Hot Springs, Arkansas that dare not speak its name.

1. Three words: Dave. &. Busters.
