Everywhere There's Lots of Piggies


Citizens Against Government Waste has handed out its 2005 Pig Book, a rundown of the most heinous slabs of pork doled out from a porcine Washington, D.C. For at least the second year running, Republican Senator Ted Stevens from Alaska was the most piggish pol of all, sending home $646 million of bacon back to the 113 residents of the Last Frontier State.

Other goodies include $100,000 for the Tiger Woods Foundation, $6.7 million to the YMCA, and $1.4 million to various Halls of Fame, including the Greater Syracuse Sports Hall of Fame (which, in case you were wondering what federal service it provides, is "Home of the 24 Second Shot Clock").
