For those of us trying to understand the budget
As DeForrest Kelley would say when confronted with an alien bookkepper bearing spreadsheets on an old episode of Star Trek, "I'm a doctor, not an accountant" (well, he would have said it if such a creature had existed). I am still striving mightily to understand the budget, but recently discovered (props to Julie for this) the Massachusetts Budget and Policy Center, which breaks things down in a mostly understandable format. Try it, you'll like it. And I promise, no more 1960's era television references! I'll be back with more when I understand the budget.
