Isn't that the way all projects, government or not, work? I remember
horrifying numbers quoted in places such as Robert Glass's column in
Comm. of the ACM to the effect that 50% (or maybe it was 60%, or 90%)
of projects fail by either not producing a deliverable, or producing
a deliverable that doesn't work, or by producing a working deliverable
that doesn't solve the problem.
Don't interrupt me when I'm eulogizing.
