For John, BLUF: First Day, but we have many more to come. Nothing to see here; just move along.
This being the first day of Sequestration, it is time to look at how bad it will be. On 23 February there was this article in The [Lowell] Sun, "Deep national-park cuts seen in budget standoff".♠ I blogged about it here.
One of the questions in my blog post was what adjective The Sun would use when the cuts moved past 5%, given that they were using "Deep" for the first traunch of cuts.
To help out the reporters and editors of The [Lowell] Sun I have put together this table from my computer thesaurus:
|extending far down||cavernous||yawning|
No need to personally thank me.
Regards — Cliff
