By email, in response to my previous post, my son Jerry said
It sounds to me like you wound up getting chrome from a third party
website instead of from google.com, could it be?
Yeah. But it was right up near the top of the google search results. Right after the sponsored links. I should have been more careful. But then, that's pretty much what I said in the previous post: Don't trust Chrome and don't trust Google any more.
In that post from last week I said I had an interesting graph to show you. This one:
|Graph #1: Federal Employees as a Percent of All Nonfarm Employees|
I told you it was an interesting graph!
I happened upon a post by Patrick Sullivan the other day. I'm not sure what point he was making, but he did mention "the five-fold increase in the staffing of [federal regulatory] agencies since 1960".
I don't know where Sullivan's number comes from. But a lot of people have numbers like that. Graph #1 would make you wonder about all of them.
