“The celebration marks the evolution of a publication that began as a
two-column, 16-page gazette of the burgeoning federal bureaucracy
created by the New Deal. It has progressed from a diary of completed
rulemakings — usually about five items a day at first — to an
Internet-based reference that allowed some 208 million documents to be
downloaded in 2004.”
