NASA Budget: How does this affect me?

Another interesting thing about looking through the news following the release of the NASA Budget is the number of news stories that have popped up looking at how the budget plan affects each individual state, center, group, or town. Of course there are still the big national stories - What's happening? Is this good for America? etc. It makes sense that people want to know how they're affected, and it's very interesting to read through and get a sense of how various communities are feeling about the changes. (I linked a bunch of stories here as examples, but there are lots more I'm sure I missed.)
