Budget Deficit?

Maybe we wouldn't have the deficit if the government could manage to keep its spending to things proper for government.

Two Minnesota newspapers will receive a share of state grants normally given to retrain workers in manufacturing and other industries in transition.

The Duluth News Tribune and the St. Paul Pioneer Press will work with the University of Minnesota´s School of Journalism and Mass Communication to help staff adapt to an increasingly Internet-based industry.

Minnesota Job Skills Partnership is awarding $238,000 in state funds, while the newspapers and the university will contribute about $469,000 combined, mostly by devoting staff time to training.

Three quarters of a million dollars of government money to help businesses that already use the internet learn to use the internet. Keep up or fail, stop taking my damn money.
