Tour of ‘Nowhere’

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

A na­tion­wide road tour (now sur­pass­ing 7,000 miles) of waste­ful con­gres­sional pet projects pulled into Alaska on Aug. 15, mak­ing a stop at the once-pro­posed site of the $223 mil­lion in­fa­mous “Bridge to Nowhere” — or, more specif­i­cally, it would have linked Grav­ina Is­land (pop­u­la­tion 50) to Ketchikan (pop­u­la­tion 7,922).

“We are re­ally the first anti-pork group to ac­tu­ally visit the site of nu­mer­ous ear­marks from coast to coast,” An­nie Pat­naude, spokes­woman for the Amer­i­cans for Pros­per­i­tyFoun­da­tion’sEnd­ingEar­marks Ex­press, tells Inside the Belt­way.
