    Biden has a tough job overseeing the Economic Stimulus Act. There will always be some waste/corruption when this much money is being spread around to all 50 states.

    So here is one I heard about on Air America last night. (Liberal progressive radio)

    If only Rush and Fox would have told us when the GOP was wasting money. Instead, all they were was the GOP's propoganda machine.

    Slublog: Airport to Nowhere, Part II?

    Presque Isle is a nice little city (well, city by Maine standards) in Aroostook County. Its population in the 2000 census was 9,511. That's not a lot of people. Perhaps, though, one should judge whether the money is being spent wisely by how many flights go in and out of the airport per year.

    That number? Not so big. Last year, the number of flights was 4,522. On average, that's about 12 a day, or $552 per flight.

    Feel like your money is being well spent?

    Most people in my office don't know what it is or where to find it. It's AM radio for god sakes.

    Have you seen their ratings? :lol:
