Letter to the editor

Continuing resolutions cost American taxpayers millions of dollars in duplicated effort, missed project goals and paperwork delays. And it isn't just a few people this affects. It's everyone in government, most of the government vendors, and even tourists to Washington, D.C.

Look on the Office of Personnel Management's Web site. Most of the IT security positions have been withdrawn or are delayed in posting because of lack of fiscal 2003 funding.

If there is another terrorist incident in D.C. before March, I wonder how Congress will explain that to the American people? I, for one, will be writing detailed letters to the Washington Post and FCW!
