Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)
Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.
This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Remember what I said a few weeks ago?
Something about back-room deals with construction folks and bonding companies if this new one percent sales tax increase passed?
Langford looking for discountsGee, imagine that. True, professional services don't have to bid based on fee. The general idea is that services are based upon experience and professionalism, and a lower fee may or may not be indicative of the level of service rendered. HOWEVER, even professional services contracts, especially those for which hundreds of millions of dollars are at stake, usually go through some sort of open, objective, public vetting process prior to the contracts being awarded. Well, see, I would be kinda worried about someone working to see if something CAN'T be done. Then again, maybe inaction is for the best... Yeah, good luck on that, Sparky.
