Braulio Castillo is the the malingering miscreant business owner who was eviscerated by Tammy Duckworth (Democrat of Illinois) on Wednesday during a hearing by the House [of Representatives] Oversight and Government Reform committee. (Readers, for more info, go somewhere else!)  Our ears pricked up when we read this:  “Castillo told the committee that much of his business was actually run from his home in suburban Loudon [sic] County, Virginia.” (Associated Press) (from http://abclocal.go.com/wls/story?section=news/national_world&id=9154464)

Land of Excess couldn’t resist checking out the “home”.  It is a “Chamberlain” model by Toll Brothers in a so-called “golf community” in Ashburn, VA.   We were startled to see that the lot backs up to one of those huge power lines that scare people like our founder.  We will have more on the topic of this residential building tomorrow.
