My previous discussion post on this subject generated a lot of interest so I decided it was time to prepare another You Tube production. This was designed to provide an insider's viewpoint on all of…Continue
The GSA scandal has been quiet, save for that ridiculous midnight raid by the IG (for which I read a lot of excuses but no apology). It's been almost four months since my last You Tube zinger.…Continue
