Speaking of Coburn, he's highlighted what could be the most absurd expense in the stimulus package:

Road signs costing $300 each, to be placed at construction sites to inform motorists that the project is being paid for with stimulus money.

Just in case you need something to read while you're inching along through a construction zone.

As we pointed out in Sunday's editorial, a good site to keep track of stimulus projects is at www.recovery.org. It's run by a private firm, Onvia of Seattle, Wash. It's more up-to-date than the White House's official stimulus web site, recovery.gov, which isn't expected to have comprehensive data until October.
