Are Computers and Government Compatible?

Just a short post with a couple of questions.

First the Department of Veterans Affairs loses a laptop and external drive with millions of records.

Now the I.R.S. has lost a laptop with hundreds of records on it because an employee checked it on a flight to a job fair.

Does any sane person check a computer?

Did the government ever lose a filing cabinet? Maybe computers and government are incompatible.

OR maybe when too much information is collected for no good reason it loses importance to those collecting it.

Just asking.
