Your must-read post today

Greyhawk at Mudville Gazette. There's much more, but here's what got me:
The Washington Post business section (rarely read in this one-industry town) had a piece yesterday on the extraordinary failure of the federal government to comply with a 1999 law requiring the government to award 3% of its contracts to firms owned by disabled veterans.
As you might expect, not a single department has even come close to complying – with two of the worst offenders (and biggest contract granters) being The Pentagon and The Veterans Administration! – languishing at .18 and .41 percent respectively.
Maybe someone needs to tell them that some of those disabled veterans are women or minorities.
