OpinionJournal has the story of a $50 million earmark of Federal money for a rainforest in Iowa, that has yet to even get close to fruition, while the money is slowly leaking away to pay exorbitant salaries for the Project Director and who knows what else. Senator Grassley has finally put the brakes on the project pending private donations. Read it and weep. Think about how much better you or I would spend the money, or, where else the money could be better spent on the poor and needy. There is a blog dedicated to the subject of this boondoggle - Iowa Pork Forest.
