*** begin quote ***

(CNSNews.com) – The director of the U.S. Census Bureau, Dr. Robert Groves, told CNSNews.com that the Census “successfully completed” all operations to date despite a “shaky” information technology (IT) system that affected the early weeks of door-to-door counting. He added that he does not have “any evidence” that the IT problems had a “quality impact” on the accuracy of the population count, but encouraged people to wait for a final report that will be issued by the Commerce Department’s inspector general to “see what he has to say” as an “independent voice.”

Can you say “cooking the books”? What better way to get the result you want than to blame it on the technology.

I added a note to a contact, saved it, and xed out. Coming back the note is “gone”?

Any ideas?
