Eagles, if only taxpayers had more influence on the purse strings. School boards with hilarious "contingent" budgets that are pennies lower than the original submission, municipal budgets that don't seem to add up..and really don't because someone forgot to give the water department enough money to buy chemicals to treat the water with, forcing purchasing water from other districts, secret meetings, lack of public notification about issues, etc. surprise visits by auditors would be nice.
