I was happy to read that Delta will be upgrading to fiber optics through cooperation with the Eagle-Net Alliance. In paragraph two of the 9/12 article, a $100 million federal grant is mentioned as the funding behind this nationwide push toward modernization.
What readers may not realize is that this grant is one more component of the oft-maligned Obama stimulus plan.
Readers who are interested to learn more about the hundreds of benefits contained in the 2009 Recovery Act, but seldom publicly acknowledged, would enjoy reading the new book, "The New New Deal: The Hidden Story of Change in the Obama Era" by Michael Grunwald, published just last month. Grunwald, a Time Magazine reporter, spent two years researching this huge, complicated and far reaching piece of legislation. He also shines a spotlight on some of the people tasked with implementing the law.
