Justice Department Meatballs Exposed

CNN (so you know it's not only true, but vital that you know it) reports:
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Hungry attendees at Justice Department conferences have been enjoying millions of dollars in meatballs and other goodies courtesy of U.S. taxpayers, according to an inspector general's report released Friday.

The report cited $5 meatballs and cans of soft drinks each costing $4.55 among reasons 10 conferences during 2005 and 2006 cost nearly $7 million.
Observation: In our experience (and we know whereof we speak) the really expensive meatballs at the Department of Justice cost taxpayers way more than $5.

Question: How come we never get invited to any of these meetings and conferences at which suchlike things are free?
