Best Doublespeak Ingest Slogan

Downtown Jam

You've seen it on signs all over downtown. Sounds like fun, doesn't it? Like maybe bands playing for free and white-collar downtown types checking it out on their lunch hours? Sure doesn't sound like what it is - two to five years of traffic headaches while CSC and all the related projects are being erected. Orwell would be proud.
