From The Press Democrat

North Coast Reps. Lynn Woolsey, D-Petaluma, and Mike Thompson, D-St. Helena, have requested more than $864 million in federal spending, known as earmarks, mostly on projects within their districts... They range from $85,000 for the California Indian Museum and Cultural Center in Santa Rosa to $80 million each for marine sanctuary programs and for a Commerce Department Pacific Coastal Salmon Restoration fund.
And Thompson has requested $350,000 in Homeland Security funds to restore the antique Coast Guard lighthouse lens in Ferndale, and to create a “museum-quality facility” to display it.
“These are important projects to the people of our district, and they create jobs and generate economic growth,” he said in a statement. ‘This is not pork'

Eight lulus in a doozy, and sixteen doozies in a humdinger.

No one knows how many humdingers
there are in a lollapalooza."
