    $43 K for a soundproof booth? I can only think of one I've ever seen, and it never seemed to work very well.

    Why don’t you worry about the Canadian EPA or the horse riding police or something?

    I have no clue why the EPA would need a SCIF.

    I was more or less liking his post because he was poking fun at a foreigner questioning anything in our country.

    An amazingly piece of critical equipment...especially for the EPA.

    Trust me, if someone in the CDN gov't tried to put one of these in their office, I would be posting it too. The first thing I thought of was the cone of silence and had a chuckle. Thought I would share.

    So, $43K for a sound-proof booth is outta line, and you'd post about it. Got it. What about these little piggy awards? I don't remember seeing you post up about them...

    FWIW, I think it's great you guys put on an awards show to shame the folks who waste money. :tu
