Lisa,

 

Henry Paulson learned this Modus Operandi from Paul Bremer who handed out billions in cash in Iraq in order to bypass the bureaucracy and speed up the rebuilding process.

When someone asks where it went they will just shrug their shoulders and say it was more important at the time to distribute it than keep track of who actually got it.

A virtual version of ancient Rome's Coliseum is shown in an animated map provided by Google Earth in Rome November 12, 2008. Chief Technology Advocate Michael T. Jones, co-founder of Google Earth and Maps, the service that lets users move through three-dimensional satellite images of city streets, was in Rome to launch a new facility providing virtual visits to ancient Rome, circa 320 AD. Based on virtual architecture of the ancient city created by U.S. and Italian academics, it now allows the 400 million people who visit Google Earth to enter the ancient Roman Forum "or go to the Circus Maximus and imagine you are Ben Hur", said Jones.
