$3000 VW 450th Facebook Sponsorship: Vulgar, Crass Commercialism, Selling Our Wares

For thirty (30) weeks, for the grand amount of $3000, the City of St. Augustine has sold its 450th Facebook page to Volkswagen of St. Augustine.
The page is covered with photos of historical sites, replete with Volkswagens.
It is marketing for Volkswagen of St. Augustine.
"We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon" said the poet William Wordsworth. To Volkswagen, a German multinational corporation that manufactures automobiles.
How cheesy.
How cheap.
How crass.
How louche.
How gauche.
This is what we pay DANA STE. CLAIRE (a/k/a "PRIMA DANA") and the likes of CBARLES SERAPHIN to do all day?
Yet another negative legacy from ex-Mayor JOSEPH LESTER BOLES, JR.
