*** UPDATED x1 *** Fun with numbers
Tuesday, Jun 19, 2012
* The Pantagraph looked at grocery purchases from the beginning of the fiscal year through April…
Except that the General Assembly has lots of employees. So the cost shouldn’t really be broken down “per member.”
* Illinois Review completely misread the story and filed this rewrite…
1) It’s through April of this year, not since.
2) The coffee supplies category includes the cost of actual coffee, according to the article.
*** UPDATE *** It appears that the Illinois Review has retaliated, but of course they bungled it badly…
Actually, it was the Illinois AFL-CIO’s endorsement that I wrote about, not AFSCME. And it happened last week, not last weekend. Also, I suppose I’m left-wing when compared to IR. But then, pretty much everybody is. And the column appears statewide, not just in the Southtown Star.
