Export-Import Bank fatcats fly first class on taxpayer money. YOUR money.

Hot Air and National Review have this exactly correct: this stinks on ice.

Officials of the Export-Import Bank of the United States blew the agency’s travel budget by millions of dollars after taking 400 first-class flights over the last three years, according to records obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.

Ex-Im is a federal agency that provides taxpayer subsidies to U.S. exporters such as Boeing, General Electric and Caterpillar.



Yeah, well, went to see X-Men: First Class.

It was good; better than the last X-Men movie, which should have been cut in half and each half expanded out into its own flick. Good actors, decent take on the 1960s, fairly straightforward plot, and most of the X-Men didn’t have insanely overpowered AND FLASHY abilities.  All in all, good movie: the biggest problem I had with X-Men: First Class was the last five minutes, which went a little (read: ‘a lot’) twisty in its attempt to get the movie back in line with the original continuity.

Anyway, light posting today.
