    •  I imagine a lot of that NOAA budget (4+ / 0-)

      is high tech in nature. Satelittes and the like. I can easily imagine that the Patent office doesn't require the same budget though they could probably use a set of really powerful mainframes and large databases to do their research work which I gather suffers from a lack of modernization. But that would still pale to the cost of launching satellites.
