Exhibit A in Government Incompetence

By October 9, 2003politics

Times Picayune: “Since 1999, the New Orleans school system has sent paychecks to more than 1,000 people who had stopped working — sometimes for a year or more — and until recently, it paid insurance premiums for about 2,000 people not entitled to the benefits, according to a board consultant. The errors probably cost the system millions of dollars, but the exact amount hasn’t yet been determined.”

Sheesh, governments sometimes act like they are spending someone else’s money.


P.S. If you appreciate these kinds of observations, you might want to read this as well.
