  1. Massive public money has gone into the giant egg. The biggest chunk was from CCDC. Where did they get that $80 mill? The state chipped in $20 mill and SDUSD chipped in $20 mill, where did they get that money? It also adds $3 mill a year to the city operating budget. All for a big ugly silver monument to outdated methods and needs. Donations went into it, but it is still a massive taxpayer funded boondoggle.

  2. The budget for this is $40 million a year!!!

    Now, get real, $40Mil could do a lot more good for neighborhoods than being spent on outdated services served at the speed and cost of government.

  3. Seems to me that the money could have been spent on smaller scale branch libraries in all San Diego neighborhoods instead of building a monument to egos run amok.
