"We're from the government,

you're screwed."
Finally, we had turned to the EPA for help figuring they would know who they licensed to haul these materials, and could point us to the closest one. 'We understand your situation' they said. They'd come and help us, they said. When they got here, they didn't help at all. What they did was count barrels, and slapped a fine on us for each barrel over our licensed limit, and left telling us that they'd be back next month, for another round of fines if we couldn't prove we'd gotten rid of them legally."

Is it just me, or is there an object lesson there? "We're from the government. We're here to help."

Read the whole damn thing, lost jobs and all.
