Pigs at the Trough

Chinese New Year Simon remarked on the Journal's list of local pork the other day, but I've become more and more interested in Senator Seward's allotment of half a million to a group that's helping citizens fight NYRI. I mean, this is taxpayers' money. I don't support the building of a gigantic power line that will cut a swath through upstate to bring electricity downstate, but it is a political issue. I can't think of another occasion when pork has been used to choose sides in a political debate. Maybe I'm wrong, and others will set me straight.

Paul, on the other hand, wonders why legislators can continue to give our money to churches.
