Thought this was really cool. A buddy (thanks Chris) sent me a link to this little calculator published by the Sacramento Bee. It shows the estimated personal impact of the proposed California budget package. (Those are the default values in there on the right - pop in your own to see your personal story).
OK, the results of the calculation are not cool, but the idea of making the impact of obscure legislation available to the general public in real time in an interactive/personal fashion is a great use of the Internet.
Man, I knew we shouldn't have had all thosee kids - ouch!
