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.
