  Paul E. Schroeder - A Life, Wasted - washingtonpost.com
They were wasted in a belief that democracy would grow simply by removing a dictator -- a careless misunderstanding of what democracy requires.
They were wasted by not sending enough troops to do the job needed in the resulting occupation -- a careless disregard for professional military counsel.
Until then, the lives of other sons, daughters, husbands, wives, fathers and mothers may be wasted as well.

  Wasted vote - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An electoral system which reduces the number of wasted votes is considered desirable by some, on grounds of fairness or on the more pragmatic basis that a voter who feels their vote has made no difference may feel detached from their government or lose confidence in the democratic process.
Their arguments may either suggest that in any voting system each vote is wasted (unless the result is decided by a single vote), or that no vote is wasted as each one sends a political signal which will be taken into account in preparation for the subsequent election.
In a plurality voting system, the term "wasted vote" is not usually applied to votes for the second-placed candidate, but rather to votes for candidates finishing third or lower.

 eBay - Book: Wasted (ISBN: 0060930934)   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Wasted is the story of one woman's travels to the darker side of reality, and her decision to find her way back--on her own terms.
An organization based on the idea that it's therapeutic to embrace your disease as chronic ('I'm X and I'm an alcoholic') and to publicly confess, in detail, your personal journey to the point of "hitting bottom," AA may well be the most significant force behind the proliferation of this kind of memoir.
Wasted : A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia by Marya Horn

 Bold Type: Marya Hornbacher
Wasted is not inspiring and uplifting; it is a painful and soul-baring exploration of the geneologies of one woman's eating disorders.
Unlike sanitized accounts of anorexia/bulimia, which end up making eating disorders more attractive to those who are already vulnerable, Wasted presents anorexia/bulimia as a disgusting affront to humanity and self.
From the age of nine, when it first occurred to her control her body's calorie intake by vomiting up the food she ate to her complete collapse as a college student in Washington, DC -- when her weight dropped to 52 pounds -- Hornbacher does not pull any punches.

 CorpWatch : IRAQ: Billions Wasted
Billions of dollars are unaccounted for, and there are widespread allegations of waste, fraud and war profiteering.
The United States has spent more than a quarter of a trillion dollars during its three years in Iraq, and more than $50 billion of it has gone to private contractors hired to guard bases, drive trucks, feed and shelter the troops and rebuild the country.
Ambassador Paul Bremer, the former head of the Provisional Authority, has said most contractors were doing their best to perform quickly and that it is unfair to apply standard accounting practices in the midst of war.

Recovery and productive use of waste heat from power generation is a critical first step in a productivity-oriented environmental strategy.
This act played a critical role in expanding cogeneration into the marketplace by addressing many barriers that were present in the early 1980s.

Rice also defended the American practice of "extraordinary rendition," the capture and secret deportation of detainees on foreign soil to third nations, which, just coincidentally, have rather lax rules against torture.
As critics have pointed out, rendition is just a big waste of jet fuel unless you are trying to spirit prisoners away to places where they will not be protected by the law.

 KOMOradio.com - Seattle, Washington - National & World News - With $1 billion wasted, more Katrina abuse yet to emerge
Several of the contracts were hastily given to politically connected firms in the aftermath of the 2005 storm and were extended without warning months later.
Earlier this month, the Government Accountability Office said its initial estimate of $1 billion in disaster aid waste was "likely understated," citing continuing problems in which FEMA doled out tens of millions of dollars in fraudulent housing assistance.
A study earlier this year by Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., estimates that hundreds of millions of dollars were likely wasted on contracting, citing instances of double-billing and thousands of trailers meant as emergency housing sitting empty in Arkansas.

 The Seattle Times: Nation & World: Audit shows millions in Katrina aid wasted
FEMA arranged for a free trailer for a family in Lacombe, La., in January, yet kept providing monthly rental payments in late January, February and April totaling $5,500 — a mistake resulting from poor communication within the agency, according to the report.
In addition, $20 million was wasted on thousands of people who claimed the same property damage from two hurricanes, Katrina and Rita.
In one case, FEMA purchased 20 flat-bottom boats, but could not find two of them and lacked the legal titles to any of them.
