Stimulating Stimulations

Stimulus in a nutshell - Mark Steyn - The Corner on National Review Online: "The 'stimulus' is advancing an already bloated statism at the expense of the real economy. That's why it's a flop. As for who this Mr Fitch is, he's the 'Acting State Stimulus Office Director'. The 'stimulus' is great if you're thinking of a career in Stimulus Office Management, Stimulus Office Management Consulting, Stimulus Office Human Services, Stimulus Office Promotion, or perhaps becoming a professor in Stimulus Office Studies."

--blogging at NRO, Mark Steyn cites a report on how "stimulus" money saved 700 New Hampshire "state" jobs -- in effect, propping up an already bloated public sector.
