The Oklahoman ran a partial list of Oklahoma-related earmarks in that huge federal-spending bill, and as pork goes, we seem to have gotten mostly rinds. This is the one, though, that really gets me:
$500,000 for the I-40 Crosstown Expressway project.
Half a million bucks for a project that’s going to cost over a billion? What is this, National See If Tom Coburn Is Sleeping Day? Five hundred Gs wouldn’t build one good onramp not that we have any real experience in this state when it comes to building good onramps.
