Life And Debt Situation

Millions Of Reasons To Strive For Accuracy

A Chinese official learning about local government in New York has discovered a $314.78 million error in a budget document. Ellie Su, 27, noticed that a debt service document entry for Nassau County read $34.98 million instead of $349.76 million. Nassau County is getting Su's expertise for free, with China paying the intern's salary while she works with the Office of Legislative Budget Review.

FOOTNOTE: Debt before dishonour.

Damn, that's a big chunk of cash. Hilarious, but really not. Yep, we need a lot more folks like that.
