Holy bureaucratic inefficiencies, Batman!

The Department of the] Interior alone is managing about 31,000 Web sites, presenting between 3 million and 5 million pages of information with maintenance costs approaching $220 million a year. “Now, AOL-Time Warner, who I believe is the largest Internet service provider in the world, manages in contrast about 50 sites, but the Interior Department manages 31,000 different Web sites,” the congressman says. “In an agency that employs 70,000, that means the Department of Interior has almost one Web site for every two employees.”

How anyone can read something like this and still expect positive results out of government, be it managing the debt, nation-building or welfare, I’ll never know.
