THE STIMULUS AT WORK

THE STIMULUS AT WORK

Some have said that the stimulus hasn't saved any jobs, but here is a case where at least one job was saved. Oregon State University Athletic Director Bob DeCarolis was considering firing their basketball coach, Craig Robinson, after an 8-11 start (2-5 in the Pac 10 conference).
When word of this reached Washington, Undersecretary of Education Martha Kanter was dispatched to Corvallis with $17 million in stimulus money for the university.
Craig Robinson's job is safe for this year.
For those of you unfamiliar with Coach Robinson, he just so happens to be Michelle Obama's brother. Just a coincidence I'm sure!

GO BEAVERS!

If this is true, it pisses me off to no end

If a man can make you mad just by talking, then he is far brighter than you.

True

It was widely reported (although not on ABC or NBC, to my knowledge).

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man. (Mark Twain).
