Putting those hard-earned profits to good use

From an update on the inauguration festivities enjoyed by the Illinois contingent:

Caterpillar Inc., for example, sponsored “Illinois State Fair” food that included corn dogs, popcorn and cotton candy. Other themed rooms included an Irish pub, a pizzeria, a sports bar, a 1950s diner and a disco that was sponsored by Microsoft.

I guess that’s an improvement on the Blagojevich Memorial Graft, Corruption and Back-Scratching Brunch.

(Good thing my mom doesn’t work at Cat anymore; she’d have drawn a line in the sand over the cotton candy: imagine what that does to dental benefits costs.)
