Stimulating Microsoft

I remember going to Microsoft when it only had two buildings -- one for apps and another for MS-DOS -- with a cafeteria in between. Now the Microsoft campus makes Harvard look puny. All these workers drove up house prices and drove up traffic.

The Obama administration feels the Microsoft employees' pain and plans to help fund an overpass to make it easier to get from one side of campus to the other. Hey, Obama! My driveway needs paving. Can you help a fella out?

What would you spend the stimulus money on? Advice (but no cash or checks) can be forwarded to [email protected].
