Letter: Festivus-worthy spending

Letter:
Festivus-worthy spending

Here we go again! The annual Festivus report is in on some of the stupid expenditures that have been voted on in government this year. Millions spent on a study about gambling that paid for pigeons to play slot machines; another study that finally verified that kids crave junk food; $25 million for art projects to be displayed around New York City; more than $11 million that a US agency put out to request Vietnamese citizens stop burning their trash; $250 million to build border walls — not here but in the Middle East and Africa; $549 million on planes for the troops in Afghanistan that were left behind and turned into scrap.

God help us!
