Hmm - "there's no point in having reserves if you don't use them."
and something I read earlier to the effect of "we should spend the Google money now while it has more buying power".
I'd like to think reserves are for unexpected expenditures, not something to spend because it's there. Likewise, just because we got money from Google doesn't mean we have find something to spend it on.
I don't know how long the average reader has been living in Mountain View, but I've only been here a few years and have reached the conclusion that it's a great place to live, but not worth the $1,300 a month in taxes.
