Executive Order 12044

Executive Order 12044, intended to "Improve Government Regulations," was signed the day I was born: March 23, 1978. I know this, because I snooped around through Jimmy Carter's diary. I wonder if as many calls to government officials are not completed as were not in 1978. After all, with cell phones, who would be so unreachable or busy as to miss a call from POTUS?

The diaries are an interesting peek inside the life and days of my nation's highest office. I've spent quite awhile flipping through them, and I'm tempted to set up large curl job to download all of the PDFs. Most of the text seems to be rendered as text and not scanned images, which means that these PDFs are largely searchable.
