1. $500,000 for Homelessness Prevention in the town of Union, NY.
- Union, NY does not have a single homeless person.
2. $2.2 million for Skylights to be Installed in a state-run liquor warehouse
3. $3.4 million to build a "turtle crosswalk" in Lake Jackson, FL
So far be it from me to toot my own horn about how the stimulus was a gigantic waste, but I sure did write a hell of a lot about how it wasn't going to work, and how not much of the spending was going to go to useful work.
I may not be Paul Krugman writing a prescription for the housing bubble in 2002, but seeing the facts bear out my own thoughts is somewhat satisfying.
If only it weren't so horribly sad.
