A Trip Down Stimulus Highway

Alright all of you Butts County readers, it's time to get angry. Pretty soon the good citizens of Wilkinson County and Gwinnett County will be driving their shiny new cars and trucks down freshly paved roads and crossing over sturdy new bridges while you will be stuck driving on the same old bumpy roads and crossing over those rickety bridges that were built in 1949.

Yup, it's time to look at the Transportation Infrastructure stimulus projects interactive map. This baby lets you see county by county projected stimulus spending for the entire country. Man, Harris County, Texas has it going on! $300,407,587.00 is real money! Houston, we have a (stimulus) problem.
