The county office that manages the water and sewers sent us two bills this month, exact duplicates of each other. As I expected, not long, after we received a letter explaining the mistake and telling us to disregard one. What made the letter worth a few electrons in this space is one particular sentence.

As much as we would like to tell you that we have been subject to a computer glitch, the truth is we made a mistake and inadvertently send out duplicate bills.

Amazing! A government agency admitting they made a mistake and taking responsibility for it. Do you suppose the trend will spread across the river into DC?
