U.S. Gives Anchorage $1.5M for Bus StopI worry about my son having the money to put my twin grandchildren through college. Part of what he earned this year as a fireman/EMT technician went to pay for this $1.5 million bus stop that nobody - except a reckless and irresponsible United States Senator - wants.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- Tom Wilson is faced with a problem many city administrators would envy: How to spend $1.5 million on a bus stop.
Wilson, Anchorage's director of public transportation, has all that money for a new and improved bus stop outside the Anchorage Museum of History and Art thanks to Republican Sen. Ted Stevens - fondly referred to by Alaskans as "Uncle Ted" for his prodigious ability to secure federal dollars for his home state. (link)
Shame on Republican Senator Ted Stevens.
