Newspapers are still indeed worthwhile. Especially when an editorial brings to light a government screw up like the failure of Congress to consistently fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund. Created in 1965, it was to be annually funded to the tune of $900 million from “excess” profits of offshore oil and gas leases. To date, that has happened only twice. Last year, offshore drilling leases generated $18 billion. Not to mention one hell of a freaking mess.
