The Daily Outrage: Sky-high costs for a sky-high project 

Who: Federal Aviation Administration

What: Has spent $1.8 billion so far on the "En Route Automation Modernization" project, which will replace a 43-year-old system that directs aircrafts at high altitudes.

Why it's an outrage: It is running behind by six years when it had originally been estimated to finish by the end of this year. The project will cost $70 million, or 53 percent, more than the FAA planned to spend in the current fiscal year to correct system flaws.

Where to vent: Call the inspector general at 202-366-1959.
