The timing on this thread is so funny (ironic, not ha-ha)
I was watching the news last night (Atlanta, GA) and one of the top stories was about a city near here called Lithonia.
Apparently there has been a HUGE internal struggle with the town council, the mayor and the police chief - a fistfight broke out at the town council meeting last Monday, and the mayor tried to fire the police chief (got voted down).
The mayor then tried to walk out with her computer, but was stopped. But the next day the computer was missing from the town hall. It had ll of the city's financial records - including payroll, and it was the only copy! No backups anywhere, so the city is at a complete standstill because they have no idea what to do about anything.
I know this sounds like a complete fairy tale, but here's the news link: Fox Atlanta News: City Computer Missing
