Why there's no money for anything
Among the hundreds of dubious pork-barrel projects larded into the just-completed state budget is a group devoted to quilt-making, a doll museum and a "gay day" in the Catskills, The Post has learned.
There's also cash for synchronized swimmers, rowers in Syracuse and onion research at Cornell University.
It's all part of $200 million for local pork projects that have been stuffed into the state spending plan and unearthed in a review by The Post.
The lawmakers who sought funding for each project are not identified but will be made public later in the year.
