I’ve been meaning to post this for ages. This is a cover from the Greeley Tribune’s flood coverage. Smaller paper, but they occasionally really do things right.

True story, and I kept having to go back and fix it.

Wow, I finished that painting almost a year ago… I’d forgotten just how awkward that was.

One thing the article doesn’t point out: while the design was fairly progressive in the 1950s, the fact that in 2015 the paper is largely using the same design as it was 50 years ago and still not running any color on its front page is also pretty egregious.

“It is equally unclear why the Telegraph’s editors would devote such extensive space to Biff Tannen gambling coverage.”

Now as then, the Judicial Branch continues to consume a miniscule portion of the federal budget. In fiscal year 2012, the Judiciary, including the Supreme Court, other federal courts, the Administrative Office of the United States Courts, and the Federal Judicial Center, received a total 4 appropriation of $6.97 billion. That represented a mere two-tenths of one percent of the United States’ total budget of $3.7 trillion. Yes, for each citizen’s tax dollar, only two-tenths of one penny go toward funding the entire third branch of government! Those fractions of a penny are what the courts need to keep court facilities open, pay judges and staff, manage the criminal justice system (including pre-trial, defender, and probation services), process civil disputes ranging from complex patent cases to individual discrimination suits, and maintain a national bankruptcy court system. Those fractions of a penny are what Americans pay for a Judiciary that is second to none. — Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts • Pitching the federal judiciary as an example of fiscal efficiency in the midst of the current fiscal crisis in his year-end report. “No one seriously doubts that the country’s fiscal ledger has gone awry. The public properly looks to its elected officials to craft a solution. We in the Judiciary stand outside the political arena, but we can continue to do our part to address the financial challenges within our sphere,” he also said in his statement. (ht Scotusblog)
