Something to check out

If there's one Twitter feed to follow, it'd be Senator Coburn's Pork Barrel, which chronicles wasteful pork spending in DC.  Yeah, I know that pork is a drop in the bucket as far as DC wasteful spending goes, but every little bit helps, and Coburn has been pretty solid all around on trying to limit spending. 

Anyway, this one caught my eye, given that it's not too far away from here, an official from Northumberland County was given $1500 for plane tickets plus expenses to go to an expo on renewable energy in France.  Hey, I'd be willing to listen to a bunch of bullshit artists rattle on about "green energy" for a free trip to France, if for no other reason than to get my fill of wine and brandy.
