The business of government contracting not only implies cost overruns... it virtually guarantees it.
TFA was a bit sketchy on details, but it did seem to indicate her Facebooking had something to do with the mistrial, and eventual acquittal... whether or not this is factually accurate,

Sadly, your medical care is incentivized in the same fashion as an automotive repair: the more repairs that are necessary, the greater the final invoice.
This is not to suggest there are not a great many ethical physicians, but we would be fools to overlook the likelihood that some sociopaths have slithered into the profession.
Here's to hoping they don't find any oil there, given the earthquakes it's caused in OK.
FWIW, except for the trailer-home salesmen, people here find the annual tornado problem much more inconvenient than the increase in 1.0 to 3.0 Richter quakes.
I will take with the same pleasure as being carded at 40.
