I believe in spending our money wisely, especially in these difficult economic times. Sure, it's just $329,000.00. But isn't that a small price to pay to get a picture of Air Force One flying by the Statue of Liberty? I figure that is about what I'll pay in federal taxes, so it feels great to know that the US Gov't is so much better at spending that money that I would be. Heck, I'd probably waste it in a 401K plan for my retirement...how dumb would that be? Anyway, I thought this was a great take on the expensive photo op.

Here's my version...if only they had asked me, I'd have done the picture for free!
