Having Fun, Ken Cook and EWG

Now that EWG has the database of farm payment beneficiaries up and running (something my old co-workers at USDA couldn't get done :-) ), Ken Cook is having fun by linking the payment data to to geography--in his most recent posts he's shown the people who live in Key West and in San Francisco who benefit from farm program payments.

This is called "rabble-rousing", at least when one's opponents do it. When the good guys do it, it's called alerting the people to injustices.
