I'm Envious

The EPI has an interesting page of "Economic Snapshots": weekly downloadable charts and short analyses designed to graphically illustrate important economic issues. I had hoped to be able to put something similar together on a bi-weekly basis in my copious spare time...

If I wrote you a script which could generate graphs dynamically from data stored in text files, leaving you free to write the analysis/commentary rather than generate GIFs/JPEGs, would this help? (Actually, I already have the script, but it generates graphs from a database, so I'll have to tweak with the input mechanism a little...)

Thanks, but it wouldn't help. It really isn't a graph-making thing--making graphs is easy. It's a finding time/motivation thing...

EPI site is terrific - thanks.

OK, just thought I'd ask... :)
