Numbers game

Budget preparations the last couple of weeks.

Budget meetings later this week in New Haven.

Budget, budget, budget.

And you thought publishers spent most of their time playing golf, dining in fancy restaurants with decision makers and phoning in instructions from their weekend homes in the Adirondacks. Think again.

No complaints. It's the job. But between finances and human resources, there's little time for what got me into this business in the first place: reporting and editing.
