"He uses statistics as a drunken man uses lampposts - for support rather than illumination." - attributed to Andrew Lang, among others.

After a year in this job, and two out of the old one, it *still* feels odd going to meetings and discovering that people actually want illumination. But nice-odd :-)

Nothing like people who cook the books to make the numbers justify what they've already decided, plenty of that going on around here. And those people, when told precisely what the problem is, will frequently claim that people who point out the problem are the cause of the problem.
