Tram cars arrive!

Sam (the tram) Adams was at the Port of Portland today for the arrival of the tram cars. He said something that totally surprised me. He said that the Tram was "on time and on budget!"

Really? I thought it was about $40,000,000 over budget, but I guess not. Sam must think that if you revise your budget to reflect an actual cost that is several time the original estimate, then you meet that revised cost, that makes it "on budget."

Sam must follow the following advice I once read:

"To ensure you hit the target, shoot first, and call whatever you hit the target."
