Roberts then passed out. Luckily, his fall from the bulldozer was cushioned by all the money that had been stuffed into his pockets by construction companies.

Claire Kober said she wouldn’t have been called incompetent if she were a man. The issue with these people isn’t that they’re bad at getting things done, though: it’s that they’re very efficient at doing bad things.
