Iowahawk does a parody of Lileks:

“Why do sewers cost money?”

“Because someone has to build and maintain them,” I explained.

I also wanted to explain to her how the sewers of St. Paul were once grand structures, the subterranean toast of the upper Midwest, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright’s lesser known brother Dave. Like his prickly brother the “Maestro,” Dave Lloyd Wright could be a prima donna but there is no denying the man knew how to craft a sewer.
