Some have said that the stimulus hasn’t saved any jobs, but here is a case where at least one job was saved. Oregon State University Athletic Director Bob De Carolis was considering firing their basketball coach, Craig Robinson, after an 8-11 start (2-5 in the Pac 10 conference).
When word of this reached Washington, Undersecretary of Education Martha Kanter was dispatched to Oregon, with $17 million in stimulus money for the university. Craig Robinson’s job is safe for this year.

For those of you unfamiliar with Coach Robinson, he just happens to be Michelle Obama’s big brother.

Just a coincidence I’m sure!
