Government pork, that is, and slowly: former Senator for Alaska Ted Stevens has died in a plane crash near Dillingham, AK. I would not wish an early death, much less such a terrible one, on a man for feeding his state so well from the public trough but I must admit, if ever there was an apt illustration of President Ronald Reagan's comment "...government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem...," Ted Stevens was it. He was, alas, a bridge to nowhere in the series of tubes.
He's earmarking in another assembly, now. Stock up on mother-of-pearl and sulfur, demand's goin' to go up, up, up on either or both.
