Viceroy Hanley has another bill come his way soon. The reconciliation, churn, and delays in failing to set a configuration baseline for Orion keep adding up. Despite the multi-billion dollar plus-up that has already been confessed to, another quarter billion or so is needed to keep the contractors from stopping work soon.
And, oh, you wanted a launch abort system with that? Better keep the checks flowing there, too. If new money doesn't flow soon, the same company that really lost CRS, but was moved to the head of the class with divine help, will have to stop its efforts as well. That's what happens when the resources have to go to education instead of being applied directly to development. Oh, yes, good luck with that CRS thing, too.
No wonder the free models of the stick and its gumdrop payload get so much attention at the weekly staff meetings. If you had problems like these you would not want to talk about them either, now would you?
