Excellent list! You should update it every week and invite people to post their add-ons.

We are being steamrollered by the swiftness and audacity of all of this hope and change. Myself, I am still fuming about two multi-million dollar DOG PARKS in that stimulus bill, along with honeybee insurance!

Thanks for the list. I guess we have to laugh so we won't cry.
