Budget Hawk Picks On The Dead

Wastebook 2010, a compilation of Congressional spending that Senator Tom Coburn complains is unwarranted, is targeting $615k in government support that was earmarked for the Grateful Dead archive housed on the University of California Santa Cruz campus. The money, which reportedly was procured so the University could digitize items in the extensive collection, was lumped-in with other expenditures he characterizes as '...new and extravagant ways to waste tax dollars.'  Another funding decision The report railed against was the approval for $200,000 to examine 'ambiguous' comments made by politicians.  You can bet the farm and the ranch (along with the House and the Senate) that the organization that landed that chunk of change will spend some extra time checking the Oklahoma Republican's statements in the Congressional Record and his voting record.
