We delve deep into the "all funds" budget this week. Despite its' $2.75 billion budget covering all city enterprises, it's largely obscured come budget time in favor of debate regarding the smaller general fund. You know the Totescast ain't having that.

Similarly massive is the ongoing debate over the Nathaniel Sanders II shooting, its latest avenue being an argument over whether the city should finance a $750,000 settlement with Sanders' family. And in welcome news to regular Totescast listeners, following her slap on the wrist, it sounds like we won't be hearing much more about Judge Sharon Keller any time soon. Jordan Smith and Wells Dunbar are keeping their fingers crossed.
