I got money, mailed a DVD, and got groceries. I've started washing the cat blankies.
A retired major general got an Army contract on the basis of three special traits: veteran, black, and disabled. The disability? Sleep apnea. When people found that out and started talking about it, he gave the ~$100 million back. All the people I know use CPAP machines and actually work better because they get sleep. I know there are people who don't, but how do you manage a big contract that way? He was nominated by Obama to be the head of TSA and has backed out because of the "service disabled veteran" bit.
