Terror Pork Spending 'til the Cows Come Home

There aren't many people in Colorado's San Luis Valley. But there's a lot of homeland defense spending there -- about $122 per person. Cows actually outnumber people in San Luis County.

Over in Colorado Springs -- home to the Air Force Academy and two military outfits charged with protecting our skies and borders -- the spending is only $11.98 per person.

The folks in San Luis County, Colorado spend $5.8 million of their homeland security money on a new radio system.

Hope the cows are contented. (Rocky Mountain News)
