Needy Mayors

I made some data more useful today. The US Conference of Mayors published a big wishlist of projects that they would like to spend money on in the near future. They'd like to get a "Main Street Stimulus" from the new administration. Some bloggers have pointed out that certain items sound more like pork than stimulus. I volunteered to make the data a little more accessible, so that maybe we can throw together a web site that could crowdsource the vetting process, and hand off a good list of projects to Obama.

This is great! I think we need an underground ski slope around here, a la Dubai. That's a necessary infrastructure project.

And HTML sucks because people like us end up cramming HTML into our python, and we suck at it.
