Finance stories are rough on reporters, unless you’re an Andrew Ross Sorkin, and you are probably not. Few people, if anyone, can actually read a city’s full budget. (I tried to read New York City’s latest. It was deathly! Longer than Infinite Jest!) And when an exciting thing like a comptroller report on economic health comes along, well, that just does not make for fun deadline reading. And so the next-day news stories may vary quite a bit!
