Menu at this year's G8 summit in Hokkaido, Japan

If you have any doubt how money is wasted at these summits, take a look at the menu. And they are supposed to be discussing solving world hunger and third world debt. Disgusting - these people should be ashamed of themselves. Nod to Pauline for pointing this out to me.

This is really a joke and very ironic. The question is, "Can this money be put to better use?" I would like to think definitely it can.
