Arlington Tombstone

Did he support pork-barrel spending? Arlington National Cemetery, July 2009.

P.S. From The Oxford English Dictionary, 2nd Edition (1989): bacon, v. 1890 Congress. Rec. Aug. 8887/1 "We consumed or sold our own pork, and we baconed it ourselves." In case you are interested, here's this congressman's official biography.


  1. Thanks! I should point out that this is the back of the tombstone; the front side bears his full name, including the name of his wife and his military honors: http://www.arlingtoncemetery.net/rlbacon.htm
