Apart from the obvious disgust, what struck me the most was this is a very rich country, if the only way we can spend an extra billion dollars is on ridiculous and unnecessary stuff like this.

I'm watching Fox News' review of 101 wasteful stimulus projects across the country (e.g., a million bucks to determine how many deer live in Pennsylvania; covered garages for the bicycles of Microsoft employees) that total over $1.2 billion. (Which is actually chump change considering the $3.5 billion that was given to Ohio for a new federal power authority, in exchange for the vote of Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur of Toledo for the Waxman-Markey bill.)
