looking for a mascot

The website that tracks stimulus spending is looking for a mascot and the Recovery Board wants the public's input.

The folks behind posted a message on Facebook in May soliciting submissions for a mascot "that truly embodies our mission and overall purpose." They are looking for submissions that show "creativity and ingenuity," so if you're interested send images or written descriptions to by July 1st.

In case you're wondering, the Recovery Board is hardly the first agency to establish a mascot. It's just one more thing that sports teams and federal agencies have in common.
