So I am driving a woman from the airport yesterday. She just returned from Chicago where she works one week a month as a specialized accountant.
One project they had worked on was to lay 10 inch water pipe in a neighborhood in Chicago. To do so, they had to get all the city permits.
One form they had to fill out concerned the racial makeup of the people in the neighborhood they were laying pipe in.
HUH? What's that got to do with 10 inch water pipe?
Our government, in it's infinite wisdom, is paying some yahoo to print, mail and peruse these forms.
It was so ludicrous I just laughed my head off. Till I thought about it...
