Recently a grant was awarded to our local area to help stem the tide on underage drinking. This was being portrayed as a grant which was secured by "prince of earmarks" Roy Blunt.
Then I goggled searched this grant to find it is a windfall of money from the feds to states and local areas to convince kids not to drink under the age of 21.
