Letter to the editor

These brave souls [referred to in the March 4 letter to the editor] are afraid of losing their jobs — unlike those of you who toe the company line and aren't out in the trenches finding out what is really going on with the Navy Marine Corps Intranet.

Unlike them, you lack the courage and conviction to actually interview the folks in the field and find out what is really going on.

I worked at the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center in Charleston, S.C., and I have friends out there still — friends who tell me that the IT budget will double when NMCI comes online. For all that additional cost. what do they receive? A locked-down workstation that can check e-mail.

I tell you what should happen. One of these news magazines with an unbiased opinion should interview the folks that have had NMCI thrust upon them. Then we'd see how much more your government was willing to waste on a product that doesn't produce.
