    I've long since lost the link, but I once had a website bookmarked how the MIC cleverly/nefariously had spread their spending into each and every one of the 435 (is that the correct number?) congressional districts.  I haven't spent a lot of time looking this up again, largely because no one really disputes that this is true.

    The important thing is that this gives each and every congresscritter a vested interested in maintaining or increasing the pentagon's budget.
