So What's in the Stimulus Anyway?
A Report

I hope you weren't counting on me to slog through the 400 + pages of the Stimulus Bill and give you a report. Reading the whole thing would not only mean you would have to be a glutton for punishment, you would have to know something about the dozens of other pieces of legislation that the bill references . The quick peek I took convinced me that "Spend! Spend! Spend" pretty well sums it up, but I know your thirst for knowledge won't be so easily satisfied.

Nevermind. We found a good little summary, and by little summary we mean 124 pages, but it's laid out nicely and its pretty quick reading. It's freely availalable to you online. Top-flight Washington, D.C. lawyers, Patton Boggs, have come up with an Analysis of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. It's easy to understand and a quick look will keep you from thinking you'll never understand the Stimulus Bill at all. Unless you are a direct beneficiary of some program, you may read it and weep, but it won't help to keep your head in the sand.

Do you like the charming mini pig? His name is Tetley, and yes, he is as small as he looks. These little mini pigs are all the rage in England, where they live. Pennywell Farm, where the mini-pigs live, have just welcomed a new litter. The picture was snapped by Richard Austin, who has a website where he sells his animal photographs, as well as other subjects. His prices are quite reasonable, by the way, so you might want to take a look.
