City comptroller Waynetta Barnett received a one point five billion dollar check from the federal government this week.
The check was to support rebuilding efforts from this past week’s massive earthquake, reaching nine point seven on the Richter scale, the epicenter of which was directly below Night Vale. Of course, we experienced absolutely no damage to the town, and nobody reported feeling any effects at all from this enormous seismological event.
Comptroller Barnett says that she suspects that FEMA just saw the meter reading, declared this a disaster area, and sent a check. She doesn’t think they have any interest in visiting Night Vale, so we can probably just spend the money however we want.
Barnett added that those new Mini Cooper sedans are really cute, and wanted us all to look at their website.
