The Times even extends the food metaphor begun by the News. The News wanted Lieberman to stop treating anti-terror money like pork. The Times editorial, entitled Pork, Peanut Butter and Security quotes approvingly of Bloombergs testimony that money to defend against terrorism should be divvied up based on an assessment of risks, not spread across the country like peanut butter.
