    The Washington Way

    Three contractorsare bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House in D.C..
    Onefrom Tennesee, another from Indiana and the third, Florida. They go
    with a White House official to examine the fence.

    The Florida contractor takesout a tape measure and does some Measuring, then
    works some figures with a pencil. "Well," he says, "Ifigure the job will run
    about $900: $400 for materials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me."

    The Tennesee contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, I can
    do this job for $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit forme."

    The Indiana contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the White
    House official and whispers, "$2,700."

    The official, incredulous, says, "You didn't even measure like the other guys!
    How did you come up with such a high figure?"

    The Indiana contractor whispers back, "$1,000 for me, $1,000 for you, and we
    hire the guy from Tennesee fix the fence."

    "Done!" Replies the government official.
