Stimulus Watch

StimulusWatch.Org is very thought provoking.  Some folks really had their act together, Brockton Ma, and Blue Island, IL are two random examples; while some places go unmentioned Lowell Ma for example (our fourth largest city).  Since I presume the Senators from Maine are now nearly infinitely powerful I’m suprised how little money Maine appears to have gotten.  $/citizen by various voting areas would be a fun.  Then it would be easier to see which cities got nothing.  They have a ranking for most discussed, but I think it would be fun to have a score for most stupid discussion – i.e. most coments per dollars spent created.  There are plenty of errors in the data.  For example double entries or projects that create 1 job for every five thousand dollars.
