The pork-busters who work for Citizens Against Government Waste were against earmarks back in the mid-1980s, before being against earmarks was cool. A familiar pattern emerged: The fiscal watchdog organization's annual spring release of its "Pig Book" would result in a flurry of news stories about the more egregious pork barrel projects in the federal budget.

House members may have scored some points with the home folks by running their well-dressed guests through the media ringer. But such public theater does nothing to solve our energy mess. ...

Everyone loves an underdog. That's why Debbie Shank's eight-year legal struggle with retail giant Wal-Mart was so riveting and, as of Tuesday, emotionally satisfying. It's a regular David and Goliath story. But there's another way to think about the case, which has played out in federal courts and on newspaper front pages. It illustrates a uniquely American problem that saps efficiency - not to mention billions of dollars - from the health care system. First, ... [full story]
