Boondoggle Has Life Everlasting

Joe Sharpnack has an especially perceptive and penetrating eye and cartoonist's pen when it comes to the Iowa rain forest project. This morning (August 8) he has done it again. (For three other examples of his take on the rain forest search http://www.nicholasjohnson.org/politics/IaChild.)

Under the caption, "The Boondoggle That Wouldn't Die!" he pictures a Godzilla dinosaur repelling oncoming missiles with the labels, "Enough!" "No!" and "Get Lost!" Godzilla bears the identification, "Earth-Park-Rain-Forest-Education Center, etc., whatever." And Godzilla is saying, "No, really, if I could just get $25,000,000 from you guys, we could . . ."
