2008 New Mexico Piglet Book - The Rio Grande Foundation and Citizens Against Government Waste - In this age of massive bailouts, giant NASA rockets, and more, it seems odd that Citizens Against Government Waste, would focus on small incentives for entrepreneurs, but their 2008 book of waste for New Mexico includes the New Mexico Spaceport and the X PRIZE Cup. In their national book, for a long time they also included Cassini on their list of missions to cancel ... many years after it was already launched. It seems like their hearts are in the right place, but they need to focus on real waste and not on what superficially sounds like waste when presented a certain way.
