ABC News:  “Arizona is spending $1.25 million to build bridges for endangered squirrels over a mountain road so they don’t become roadkill and then monitor their health.  The money is being spent, officials said, because cars kill about five of these squirrels each year.”  If the bridges save five squirrels a year for the next 20 years, that is 100 squirrels saved at a cost of $12,500 for each furry little creature.

While the animal lovers are blowing money on squirrel bridges, “Unemployment inches up in Arizona.”
