With tax revenue still declining as a result of the recession and budget reserves largely drained, the vast majority of states have made spending cuts that hurt families and reduce necessary services. These cuts, in turn, have deepened states’ economic problems because families and businesses have less to spend. Federal recovery act dollars and funds raised from tax increases are greatly reducing the extent, severity, and economic impact of these cuts, but only to a point. The cuts enacted in at least 45 states plus the District of Columbia since 2008 have occurred in all major areas of state ...

Chapter 9: Funds for Resources for Indigent
Quality defense in the '90's requires substan-tial resources often including defense experts. In many cases experts are as important as counsel.

Two different approaches are evident: either the state pays under a state statute or case holding or the indigent defendant has to turn the money up. The competing values involved in these two approaches include the client's desires, the state's fisc, and effective assistance of counsel. The ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
The English Rule
Vice President Dan Quayle is not the first critic of the American legal system to look to England in search of reforms. A cornerstone of the package of proposals to change the U.S. legal system being espoused by the President's Council on Competitiveness, which Quayle chairs, is adoption of the principle that fees and costs of litigation should be shifted to the loser--known as the English rule. With his proposal, Quayle joins the line of critics who periodically have advocated a more "English" approach as a means of reining in the litigation excesses they perceive under the American rule, which requires ...

I'd like to transcode the commentary tracks of some DVD's for iPod listening, preferably on a mac. I think I have it narrowed down to some obscure VLC commands. Not really knowing where else it would be appropriate to ask this, but does anyone else think that the years and events since the turn of the century (2000) have been particularly trying, difficult, and full of tragedy? Especially in light of this weeks most recent disasters. Odd spot. A couple weeks ago I discovered a pink patch about 2 inches long by 1 inch wide on the top of my left breast. Being a city person, I am curious about why so many barns on the ...
