A letter to the editor of the Salt Lake Tribune thinks she’s got a better idea of what to do with F-15 funds:
Instead of throwing good money after bad, the extra billions earmarked for the JSF could fund staff and ambitious exhibits at public museums across the country, educating young students and creating jobs. That kind of creative New Deal resource allocation could pull us out of the deepening recession.
Look, Murdoc’s no apologist for military procurement cost overruns, but is this woman deranged? Opening some museum exhibits by cutting back aerospace manufacturing will create jobs?
She’s on the right track about it being “New Deal”-type resource allocation, though.
I wonder who the letter writer is. Probably just a concerned citizen.

Yep. Just another unbiased American without an agenda.
