Or "wasteful gub'ment spending" from an earlier era, in the eyes of today's conservatives.
Another rarity, these old-fashioned City of New York Public School door knobs. As the doors are eventually replaced, these knobs wind up - where? A landfill, perhaps, or some antique dealer's shop? I only know they are replaced with generic industrial, sterile (from a design perspective) "modern" handles & knobs. My school has a few of these left on some of the doors that have not yet been renovated.
