    Speaking of albums (wink) there's the flip-side to employment. Here's some wall art we had in the sales office that was colorful.

    In the more serious circumstances, I think it's important to at least be aware that police and sheriff departments have relationships with those that administer polygraphs. A number of years ago, two fellow employees claimed they saw a local sheriff department break-in, trigger the alarm, and take boxes from the chemical supplier store next door. This was about two weeks prior to the election for sheriff. They both elected to do a tv interview, though I cautioned them as to what would happen. I was wrong, it was worse than I thought it would be, which included the dubious results of the polygraph testing.

    If people want to speak about polygraphy, can I suggest moving over to a new thread I've just opened. The first post is my dissertation on the mathematics of diagnostic tests, as applied to polygraphy.

    Removing classifications that indicate that the person being tested has dishonestly selected a specific set of answers, just because the Polygraph test has been rendered unlawful in certain situations, does not mean that there are no type A or B personalities, it just means that, compared with pre 1990 data, modern data will have all of these dishonest results mixed up across all classifications. GIGO.
