This one is too good to resist. The Winston-Salem Journal reports the Foundation/Pork-Barrel Fund that gives away North Carolina’s tobacco settlement money (to help those in need) just gave $220,000 to the Sparta Teapot Museum.



You think that’s something? Sit down. Last year the foundation gave the museum $370,000. And on top of that the state legislature gave it another $400,000.


The foundation – its board is appointed by Governor Easley, Senate Leader Marc Basnight and House Leader Jim Black – spent almost as much on teapots – $220,000 – as it spent for scholarships to Community Colleges ($300,000).


That’s what passes for common sense in politics.
