Sitting uncorrected in the publicly-paid-and-created State Sen. Mary Lazich web commentary below is a funny typo, italicized for your pleasure, that might creep into text created by an ideologue:
Conservatively SpeakingFurthermore, her full post expressed outrage at some stimulus funding being spent in Los Angeles, CA, at the rate of $25 million per mile to repave some rough Interstate roadway.
Follow the money, indeed

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is running an ongoing series of reports called, “Following the money: How stimulus funds are being spent.”
Today’s article in the series reports that Governor Doyle and other Midwest governors want to sue $3.4 billion in stimulus funding to build three high speed rail routes: Chicago to the Twin Cities, Chicago-to-St. Louis and Chicago-to-Detroit. The Chicago to the Twin Cities route would include a Milwaukee to Madison segment.
Which is the same rate being spent by Wisconsin on the Interstate 94 reconstruction from Milwaukee to the Illinois state line ($1.7 billion on 70 miles of pavement, with another $200 million on new lanes, to boot: $1.9 billion total.)
Has Sen. Lazich condemned this $25-million-per-mile interstate highway reconstruction project, which got goosed into its 2009 beginning with first-phase stimulus funding of $97 million?
