Subject: Dallas to Calatrava: Redesign within the Budget

 

Trinity bridge bids far exceed budget

Dallas: City refuses to go over, will ask Calatrava for scaled-back design


 

Official Response from the Office of Santiago Calatrava:

 

“This cannot be!

 

“The Great Calatrava is unconcerned with the puny concerns of witless bureaucrats! Always The Great Calatrava is hampered by these insignificant beings with their green eyeshades and mindless prattlings of budgets, schedules and other such nonsense!

 

“In one thousand years, no one will care what the budget was for these magnificent monuments to The Great Calatrava’s genius!

 

“(N.B. Enclosed is our invoice. Please pay promptly, we do not appreciate slow paying clients).”
