    The closest airport is only 30 minutes away, but this city got federal funding to buy new airport. $15 million to Alaska to build an airport for 150 people. That's $100k per resident.

    It doesn't even bring jobs to the region, because all the workers are outsiders, who leave by plane. I blame Palin for asking for the money, when she was governor. I also blame Obama for not having better controls on the stimulus money.
