    RE: the VA ;
    It reminds me of Pennsylvania and IBM and the outsourcing the renovation of the Unemployment database system. PA is suing IBM now. There was a lot of churn among the IBM workers assigned to the job. The irony is that the old system, while very old (DOS command line), continues to work apparently.
    It’s almost exactly the same kind of situation. PA was sold on “proprietary commercial”, etc.

    I’m appalled.
