I am sending the following to my representatives and to Obama: Save the Science programs Please see if you can save some of the less expensive science programs that benefit us all. I realize that you may not be able to preserve many of the Government programs that some of us liberals want, but the following are not very costly and provide major benefits to the nation so I hope that yu and the other side can re-consider them and maintain their funding , e.g. See: http://www.offthechartsblog.org/budget-cuts-no-longer-%E2%80%9Cabstract%E2%80%9D/ National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration cuts for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration will contribute to a gap in weather satellite coverage by delaying the replacement of a key satellite. The gap, which will start in about 2016, could last a year or more and could reduce the accuracy of near-term weather forecasts, including early warnings of tornado conditions and massive snowfalls — potentially putting public safety at risk.

Thanks... p.s. I'd also like to save the Hubble Successor, but as this is not a small cost item, I am including it as an after thought rather than the main request in this eMail.

Save the Statistical Abstract
Krugman points to this plea from Robert Samuelson to save the U.S. Statistical Abstract. Under pressure from Congress to "save money", the Census Bureau will disband the small team that assembles publications on the statistics of the United States. Apparently, this move cuts 24 jobs and saves $2...
