YEAH!!! I'm very happy about this one - Spend the $ on actually putting BG's away - not on something that doesn't work.
 
I am a bit confused. It appears to me that someone in our government might actually have some common sense. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Glad to hear we had a positive outcome.

Yes, that is something that don't not happen to often.
 
It sounds like the report was written by people who actually know what they're talking about.

"Ballistics testing is only as useful as the number of images in the database," Sen. Herb Kohl, D-Wis., said while pushing for the database in 2002.

Actually, the opposite is true, Wednesday's report said. The larger the database, the more errors the computer will return.
Neither Kohl nor other lawmakers who supported the database proposal had any immediate comment on Wednesday's report.
:laugh:
