I agree with The Price of Playing Battleship
I completely agree with the The Price of Playing Battleship (http://txgovblogacc.blogspot.com/). The article talks about how Texas has spent more then $4 million on trying to sink a boat for people to swim around in under water. Like the blog stated, its not that it was not a good idea; however, it was obviously not planned and a lot of money that could have been used to support other causes in Texas has been wasted. If an expert who says he can sink a ship has to keep trying over and over, who is to say that his expert opinion on whether or not the ship is actually stable enough under water to be explored by divers? I believe that Texas obviously went over board with this project and should have thought the process out before just going off of trial and error.
