Daniels: Stop building buildings

Remember that Jerry Seinfeld joke... "Why do they call it a building? It looks like they're finished. Why isn't it a 'built'?"*

Well, all the builts that are going to be built are built in Indiana.

Gov. Mitch Daniels of Indiana has called for a two-year moratorium on university construction — a proposal that could affect $200-million in projects in the current state budget

Democrats naturally think the builts should continue being building.

Democrats in the state called the moratorium “short-sighted” and “anti-stimulus.”

*Remember this classic:

You can measure distance by time. "How far away is it?" "Oh about 20 minutes." But it doesn't work the other way. "When do you get off work?" "Around 3 miles."
