World 1, Pols 0

Last month, one of the items on the stimulus bill was a volcano monitoring program. This item was used by conservative pundits to demonstrate how the bill was laden with useless, senseless, money-wasting pork that could never be of any benefit to anyone.

Mount Redoubt, in Alaska, starting erupting this week. Alaskans were forewarned because there is a volcano monitoring program on Mount Redoubt.

You go, World.

I'm sorry, but it beats having planes crash because they flew through the ash cloud and screwed up their engines.

Can you see any effects? I would think it's too far south for that, but I don't know your turf.

The pundits are absolutely correct! Those whiny Commies proposing the bill were not even able to prevent a single eruption, despite being given advance warning. ;-)

You can only expect so much from one volcano.

Actually, it wasn't the volcano monitoring. It was the complete and total lack of anything else having to do with Mt. Redoubt. So, we're going to throw millions into watching Mt. Redoubt bury the villages and towns nearby, because they didn't allocate any of the money to anything defensive or evacuative.

They should pour some Visine in there. It gets the Redoubt.
