Do They Have Any Openings?

Federal bureaucrats have spent $1.7 billion on outrageous junkets, jetting to conferences about turtles in Greece, elephant training in Orlando and maritime issues in Fiji - all at taxpayers' expense, investigators found yesterday.

Spending on conferences spanning the globe has increased a whopping 14 percent a year.

"I think there are some highly questionable trips," fumed Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), who is probing the spending. "Can't we do better?"

Our management needs to trade one of our Senators for Coburn. If we had an "adopt a senator" program he'd be my choice.
