With a capital "B" that stands for...

Christopher Knight in today's Los Angeles Times asks why the arts community is fighting for $50 million (with an "m") when it should be billion (with a "b"), and why it's far more likely the money will go to keep an obsolete airplane in production at a cost to taxpayers of $650,000 per job.

And though he doesn't mention it, the name that lingers on my own lips is "Blackwater" (and, no, I don't mean the Doobie Brothers song of the 1970s).
