Trash Cans Competitively Bid?

According the Fluke during the debate last night, the infamous trash cans actually were selected through a competitive bid process, which goes quite contrary to most of the reporting while the whole thing was going down (for example, http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/news/mostread/s_612717.html).

This brings up an interesting point.  I assumed that the trash cans were examples of cronyism and political favor making, but if the mayor’s comments last night are true, I was wrong.  Apparently they were part of a competitive bid process where it was determined that $1000 per can was the best deal.

A wise person told me a while ago to always assume incompetence before conspiracy, and that seems to be the case here.

Hey Fluke, I have a bridge I want to tell you about…
