* Senior bureaucrats at the Department of Veterans Affairs were awarded big bonuses after putting patients on secret waiting lists.
* Bureaucrats at the Patent and Trademark Office literally were paid to do no work, and then were awarded bonuses, presumably for being good at doing nothing.

* The civil servant at the Veterans Administration who overlooked deadly waiting lists but had…um…time on his hands for other things.
