    Wandering Eye: NSA side businesses, shaky math from Baltimore's Department of Public Works, and more
    Government pay is universally derided as below-market, so it is unsurprising that many government employees start side businesses to make ends meet. Now comes Buzzfeed with the news that the National Security Agency's signals intelligence chief is associated with not one but two private businesses, one of which owns a light plane. Teresa H.
