One more thing, LT Ben

The more we think about this, the more our eyes cross and our head spins.

Here’s a paragraph just posted by Rich Ellis:

Second, to clarify on my apples and oranges metaphor, you refer to problems with "spending", but then rely on "budget" numbers to calculate your cost per pupil not our School District's actual spending. Budget and Actual Expenditure are two different things all together and there can be a big difference between the two. School districts need to budget certain expenses conservatively, to ensure they can meet their potential obligation to things like unemployment or benefits participation. Administrators then work to hold down costs by containing discretionary spending.

Read it, and then read it again.  Slowly.  Savor each word and phrase and thought.  Particularly the second sentence, which we have highlighted for your convenience.

Feel better now, bunky?
