:grits teeth:

I don’t write about everything that I do at work–it would take too much time, and it would be boring if you weren’t me.

I sometimes write about the frustrating stuff, but this time, I don’t feel like I can share it all with you, and what I think I could share … well, without a lot of missing pieces, it wouldn’t make a lot of sense. There’s a lot of backstory involved.

However, it is safe to say that, right now, I have a former materials vendor of whom I’d like to ask a lot of very, very pointed questions, and a customer whose head I’d like to have examined.

The lesson of Enron, et al, is applicable to us all: greed and deception in business may make you a short-term profit, but in the long run, everyone loses.
