Bricked up

Why do I smell government at work here?

It’s not like only modern architects and builders have the sole franchise on boo-boos:

5D, 24-105mm at 97mm, 1/3000, f/5.6, ISO 400

Now what kind of twit would do a thing like that to a beautiful facade?

Could it be because the building belongs to the local government here in Paso Robles, CA?

Maybe the person doing this was concerned about a Window Tax – something which wouldn’t surprise me given the composition of our local government here and its greed for tax revenues. But wait a minute, no government would tax itself, right? And how could all that material and labor cost be cheaper than a pane of glass?

Eureka! I get it now. The bricklayer was the mayor’s brother!
