Bravo, Jim. Here's to some .45 cal therapy to the driving DoD fallacy of the primary importance of technological superiority.

The JSF should be cancelled for the reason alone, that LockMart considers a joke of a person such as Thomson worthy of hiring. Seriously, the garbage produced by that character is mindstaggering in itself, but to imagine that this actually earns him money from companies like that.

Just stumbled across your site--loved your common sense articles. Surprised you haven't posted comments on the recent enthusiasm for "acquisition reform" dujour.

Thanks for the note. I've written a few things here and there on the latest acquisition reform ideas, but my singular contribution so far is still awaiting publication. I've submitted to Defense Acquisition Review Journal an economic analysis of the renewed enthusiasm for buying technical data rights and packages. It has come back for reformatting (always a fun step), so I need to take care of that, and get it back to them. I can get you a copy of that.
