Drudge now has a big honking headline about the social security stimulus checks going to many dead people. He linked the Fox report on it, but I saw this story somewhere else earlier because I incuded a link to it in the column I wrote for AIP this week. I was using it as another example of government failure, but edited it out because the column was borderline long. Now I can’t find that other link and don’t remember who I should have hat-tipped for it.
I will likely be offline through the weekend because my brother is getting married. Speaking of weddings and social security stimulus checks….My mom wanted to buy some additional specialty goodies to add to the reception spread. She told me Obama was paying for them — she got her $250 social security stimulus check. I told her if she had gotten a Bush stimulus check she could have bought some new earrings to wear to the wedding.
