Town wants $2 million per person in “stimulus” spending

From U.S. News and World Report, via Drudge tonight, comes this:

Why a Tiny Alabama Town Wants a $375 Million Chunk of the Stimulus

You read that right. In fairness, the town says that its proposed projects would benefit residents in nearby parts of the county. All 80,000 of them.

When you announce that $1 trillion bucks of other people’s money is up for grabs, you’re going to see ridiculous items like this. And this – a bailout for the porn industry. The only question is: which proposal is more obscene?
