Morning Cup of Stimulus: It's Not Easy Being Green

benderbending/Flickr; Krista Kjellman/ProPublicaNew this morning: The stimulus took a "green" turn yesterday as the Energy Department released funding for local energy efficiency programs -- and as President Obama deflected a question about whether legalizing marijuana would stimulate the economy.

The government also announced that Arizona airports will receive $28 million for runway and security improvements and that the $250 payments for Social Security beneficiaries will go out in May. Alabama officials say the stimulus will help save 3,800 teaching jobs in their state. Meanwhile, a company claims to have created an iPhone app for stimulus information from various government Web sites.

Project of the day: A park over a freeway that will connect the downtown Dallas arts district to its thriving Uptown neighborhood.
