Moving the Goalposts

Quick update on the long-delayed Danicing Fountains of Querétaro: according to the Secretary of Public Works, the fountains in Plaza Constitución are 99.01% finished, while the ones in Plaza Mariano de las Casas are 97.52% done. The specificity of the numbers is no less impressive for their being totally made up, if you ask us. And yet, despite being just 1.735% away from completion, the Secretary would like to remind you that the official name of the project is the "Bicentennial Fountains," and that Mexico's bicentennial is September 16, 2010.
