Online for free, multiple GINORMOUS copies are printed and distributed to every member of congress and to certain libraries. The GPO also sold about 2,500 four-volume sets to private citizens last year for $218 each.

What an effing waste! I would NEVER try to read the paper version. What about you?

Read it? Nope.

Agreed, Eric, but if there are some dam fools who will pay for it.....let it be. I would doubt, though, that they are paying actual costs judging from the post office et al.

Our goberment doesn't really know how to cost things, do they?

Never. Ever. Ever.

What a waste. I wonder how many trees forests they cut down to print all those copies??

UN. BELIEVABLE. Only OUR stupid-ass government would do something so freaking ridiculous.
