Ther eis always a choice. What that tells me right up front is that the
managers of that plant were total, complete idiots. -- And I'm being generous.

That government unit was/is run by complete idiots too. -- Neither of them
have any idea of what ISO or management or government is all about. What is
the name of this community... I wonder what the inbreeding rate is?
