President and Mrs. Bush's Tax Return for 2003

Vice President and Mrs. Cheney's Tax Return for 2003

Barbara Boxer (D - CA) has set up a special Earth Day Web Site. It includes an "Earth Day Timeline."

We reported the story of the Secret Service Agents' working at the WTC, in relation to 9/11/2001. Now you can read the Justice Department Press Release

You hear about people being added to the "Most Wanted" list, but you hardly ever hear about one of them being captured.
Check out the US Marshalls' Web site.

The State Department will be forming a closer alliance with the National Archives. The Secretary of State remarked that "unprecedented millions of people at home and abroad will have access to the historical record of American foreign policy."
He announced the introduction of a program we call SMART, S-M-A-R-T: it stands for State Messaging and Archiving Retrieval Toolset.
SMART will replace classified and unclassified legacy systems with a single, integrated system encompassing both our classified and unclassified systems. 3,000 State Department employees will be testing the SMART system before the end of the year. There will be a full-scale rollout beginning in 2005. Gary Price's friends over at the National Security Archive should be thrilled.
Incidentally, not to name drop or anything, but I was turned on to the National Security Archive by the man himself, Gary Price.

The Labor Department's Bureau of Labor Statistics [if you're a numbers cruncher, this is the site for you] reports that the Consumer Price Index [a number has its own web site!] rose .6% in March. That small an increase could represent a demand for goods and services that starts a cycle of overall recovery
I can dream, can't I?

For all the talk about reducing the size of government since 1980, government employment contracted for the first time in more than two decades only last year in 2003.
