Lee Hadden writes: \"Anna Quindlen has an interesting opinion piece in the June 30, 2003 issue
of Newsweek. \"The Bottom Line: Bogus. For most ordinary people, the tax-cut
benefits amount to less than zero. What the Feds give, state and local
governments will take away.\"
\"Public libraries have become the new poster children for governmental
impecunity. Pick a town, any town, and the library, that great nexus of
egalitarian self-improvement, is currently in trouble. Oakland, Calif. Swanson, Neb.
York, Maine. Richland, Pa. Closings. Layoffs. Shortened hours. Canceled
\"Step right up to the greatest show on earth. See a lady sawed in
half-whoops, it\'s the librarian! The administration says it\'s providing more help for
libraries, but towns have to cut library hours to afford police officers,
some required by Homeland Security provisions for which the Feds promised
reimbursement, now long overdue.\"
Yes, this is a dupe.
