For their own safety and the protection of the public, the people who designed the new parking lots at the Peninsula Center should be committed promptly to an appropriate institution along with the bureaucrats who hired them.
Conclusive proof of their severe mental problems is now set in concrete that completely surrounds the shopping area, confounding frustrated shoppers.
Possibly, the wording of the contract devised by the bureaucrats to accomplish this fiasco was ambiguous, and the contractor thought he was supposed to construct a maze rather than a parking lot.
