“Try your hand at closing California’s budget shortfall, estimated at $24 billion.”

The L.A. Times has a nice interactive where you can choose where state funding should go, or not, and which tax should go up. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is asking for Californians to post their results to a Flickr group, “Your California Budget.”

This is a great way to engage readers, but I would have like to have had better instructions for the interface. At first I thought it was drag and drop, but it’s really “click here.” Oh well, not everything’s perfect.
