A local radio (Sacramento) news item just reported that the state is short ten billion dollars already just one month after getting a budget passed (three months overdue) that was originally twenty billion dollars short. I guess that it was actually thirty billion dollars short.
Next July for fiscal 2010 the expected budget shortage starts off at twenty-five billion dollars short. . . .
I'm short about a million or two. I'd like a new house, car, more money for travel, etc. Anybody wanna help? Once I use up those dollars, I'm sure I'll find something else I want and I'll be short again. But I'll worry aboutt that when the day comes.
