So, some 24,000 pages of Governer Palin emails were released today. FOI filers paid $725.97 each to receive 6 boxes of paper copies.
24,000 pages / 500 pages per ream / 12 reams per box => 4 boxes. I wonder why the news releases say 6 boxes were required.
24,000 pages / $725.97 => 3 cents per page. They must have a high-volume, low-cost printer. 🙂
One just has to ask.. Why in the world did they release these as paper. Forget the copy cost. It required some state employee all the time and burden to DO this for each customer. I can’t fathom why they wouldn’t send out a CDROM containing the emails.
