Halloween Waste in Alabama


This Halloween Day, the 60th annual National Peanut Festival gets under way in Dothan, Ala.

Did you know that you were a host?

Despite a $374 billion federal deficit for fiscal 2003 — projected to reach $480 billion next year — Rep. Terry Everett, an Alabama Republican born in Dothan, sliced $202,500 from the 2003 Omnibus Appropriations Act for the festival, which this year features a Spam-recipe contest. Is Spam the new pork-barrel politics!?
