What drives me nuts about pet projects such as the bridges to nowhere in Alaska isn't that they happen, it's that so many of them are mindbogglingly stupid. Funneling money to favorite projects is inevitably going to be a part of government, but if you could scam $464 million for mostly useless Alaskan projects couldn't you think of anything even marginally more useful than two bridges for 83 people?
