Back to politics--I am furious at Senator Stevens of Alaska for being the biggest porker of all--especially the 250 million dollar bridge and the 5 million salmon paint job on a plane. I called him to tell him that I cancelled my plans for an Alaskan trip and would boycott Alaskan products unless he recognized legitimate national priorities above his egregious pork legislation.

The real issue is that congress is elected by local constituents who love the pork and national interests, e.g, mass transportation, pollution,preventing floods, terrorism, defense, nuclear waste, becomes submerged to regional pork issues--at the expense of the country. Stevens is the biggest of the many pigs---fred
