Little wonder the State finances are in a mess. WaPo and the Sun give widely varying accounts of the number of people affected.

WaPO says in May that the number of people expected to be affected was 6,000, and then goes on to say that the number of people actually affected fell from 3,000 in 2007 to 2,000 in 2008, while the Sun says the number of people affected fell from 7,000 to 5,000.

I'll happily pocket the difference.
