The editorial from The (Charleston) Post and Courier published May 14 is a classic illustration of why, after more than 13 years, we are no closer to an expanded port in Savannah than ever.
Here is a list of the authorities standing in the way:
South Carolina state Sen. Larry Grooms has jumped on the green bandwagon by characterizing the Savannah River dredging plan as a needless destruction of a shared resource. The editorial seems to suggest that the choice is just about the money -- $600 million versus $300 million -- without considering whether the entire project could be financed with bonds sold to private investors.
How many public dollars have been squandered on litigation, studies, meetings and appointees? Who has considered the lost-opportunity cost?
