Mind-boggling government incompetence

AP: POW benefit claimants exceed recorded POWs
The Veteran Affairs department doesn't always check with the Department of Defense to verify if someone is a former POW! Perhaps they never do. All it would take is to check an online list.

I don't have a clue what this one means.

Semi-random thoughts

● I love being able to print out movie and theatre tickets at home. But it really pisses me off that the theatres charge $2.50 for this (though it's still less than what they would charge to mail them).

● When one follows burlesque performers on Twitter, one gets some very interesting tweets:
One show down! Steaming out my bustle for round 2!

● If you're home alone waiting for a delivery, and you want it to come immediately, just go to the bathroom.

● I used "Jewish" in a tweet and I was immediately followed by the Jewish Internet Defense Force. I blocked them.

● My March madness bracket picks put me in 1,021,744th place in the CBS Sports Bracket Challenge. I probably would have done better just by flipping a coin.
