The last edition
was a hectic one.
We scrambled to make it, then
discovered that the demand was much higher as anticipated. Out of
paper we went to the paper-mill in Kahruvel to load another pallet
(some trees might be missing), out of ink we went to Jizo to squash,
in an animal friendly way, squids to retrieve their ink. The presses
kept on turning until everybody received a copy of the Bay City Post.
We were even able to deliver the Bay
City Post to Sylvia.
was no less of a challenge. Half
way most of the staff went missing in Bellisseria
. They returned with
a sunburn, could not stop talking about their new vacation housing
and were half drunk thanks to tequila sunrise.
Next we lost most of the staff as a
to Mount G'all in the hope to fix things.
Lucky everybody was reincarnated (lava burned) and we
were able to write this edition.
But first this,
Normally I would not bother you, dear
readers from our Fine City, with something boring as a budget meeting
but this time I have to as the budget has a direct impact on the
price you pay for the Bay City Post.
The lazy way to make a budget is to
take the old one and add 10 percent. The difficult way is to analyse
spending and project future spending.
We know the rental cost of our place in
the Hyperbole building, the price of the ink, the press and the
logistics to deliver the Bay City Post on your doorstep. It is also
important to include the bribes we have to give to the various
officials in and around our Fine City. I won't mention the bribes that go
towards our Mayori (tinm).
The biggest chunk of the budget goes to
the reporters, their investigative time, the development of the
pictures, the paper and typewriter. The endless time staring at an
empty white page.
We pondered and discussed together with
our leadership team and came up with a definitive budget.
We decided to do it the lazy way. We
took the old budget and increased it with 12 percent.
The motivation for the additional 2% is
the intention to give our reporters a massive and well deserved pay
The old budget was 0L$. According to my
calculator the new budget (0+0*12/100) will be 0L$. As a result the
future price of the Bay City Post will be 0L$.
