Michelle, I'm afraid you have engaged in some rather dubious creative editing, since this is what I really said:

As you can see, I never said I don't trust contractors; I said I do not trust contractors *to know what makes my management happy.* Of course I trust my contractors otherwise -- I wouldn't work with them if I didn't. Please be a little more careful with your
