Letter to the editor

In his column in the Oct. 15 Federal Computer Week ["More feds, not fewer"], Milt Zall seems to have major misconceptions upon which he formulated his opinions regarding the private sector using the "lowest bidder."

What do you think the government is doing? The space shuttle, missiles and fighter/bomber airplanes were all produced by the lowest bidder. Also, the Saturn rocket with the Apollo program to the moon and back was accomplished by the low bidder, and they all were of the private sector.

So I think you need to re-examine your opinion about more feds. Is there maybe some job security involved?
