Budget Movies

Here’s an interesting column about summer movies and the budget…

Government Executive Magazine – 7/9/03 Imitation of life
I looked through a number of newspapers over the Independence Day weekend for anything that even came close to news about the federal budget. There was nothing.
After several days of vainly searching for something, anything, about the deficit, federal spending or budget politics, I realized I had been looking in the wrong parts of the paper. I wasn’t going to find anything in “News” or “Business” – all of the action was being reported in the “Arts” section, where the federal budget seemed to be (or could have been) the basis for most of the movies that were in the theaters.
