Some of the Pork

Besides the tax break for children's arrows, here is another good one:

"Representative Mike Thompson, Democrat of California, said he switched his vote to support the bill in order to help the economy. He would not say whether the insertion of a measure to give tax breaks for auto racing tracks, which he had previously tried to get passed, played a role in his decision. One such race track is in Thompson's district. The addition of such sweeteners was criticized by some who said the bailout bill was being loaded with wasteful earmarks."

Full article, which is not focused just on the pork, is from the Boston Globe.
