Boston.com reports on Super Tuesday pork, listing just a few of the projects being sought for states where primaries are happening today. Included are national "imperatives" such as: Alaska: $487,000 to the Galena City School District for a boarding school for low performing native students from remote villages across Western Alaska. Arkansas: $679,150 to the Criminal Justice Institute of Little Rock for a law enforcement education and training program. Delaware: $390,000 to the Delaware Education Department for the Starting Stronger Early Learning initiative. Idaho: $292,000 to the Lee Pesky Learning Center in Boise to provide educational materials for literacy programs. Massachusetts: $235,000 for a weather buoy for Nantucket Sound. New Jersey: $624,000 to Rutgers University Law School in Camden for student scholarships and loan repayment, internships and public interest programming (because New Jersey doesn't tax its citizens enough!). New York: $243,000 to the Onondaga County Public Library in Syracuse for technology upgrades. Tennessee: $4,875,000 to the University of Tennessee in Knoxville for the Baker Center for Public Policy.
