Oct. 5, 2004--A man working for the Democratic National Committe hands out "Halliburton Hospitality Bags" to arriving reporters.  The items in the bag are designed to remind reporters of questionable Halliburton practices.  For example, the accompanying documentation states that the can of soda is, "A great value when you consider that according to former KBR auditor Marie de Young, KBR charged $45 for a case of soda.  [MSNBC, 7/26/04]"  Contents also included "Your Very Own No Bid Contract" and a check for $2 million.
