    In todays Amarillo Globe News editorial, the editor talks about Sen. Tom Coburn(R-Oklahoma) and his traditional annnual collection of wasteful, if not ridiculous, spending by the federal government. Some examples would be - the USDA's $300,000 to promote caviar, $1.5 billion by the FCC and Congress to provide 16.5 million people with free cell phone service, $27 million for a pottery class in Morocco, to teach them how to sell their product worldwide and the translator couldn't speak English very well, and so forth. Just passing this along. Charlie

    Brian- I haven't seen that. I went on the sight and read some stuff, but didn't get that deep. Maybe the above will work better. It is under press releases.
