The Drill

City officials were dumbfounded when they discovered
 their new courthouse had been destroyed during the night. 
The beautiful edifice was now merely a single pile of rubble
 contained within a single city block.
 The City Council convened immediately to determine what to do.

They decided to hire the best consultants they could find
 to help them determine the cause for the courthouse catastrophe.
 After a month, the consultants could find no answer.
 The building had simply collapsed upon itself 
with no outside influence of any kind.

The City Council could not accept this answer
 and hired new consultants who arrived at the same conclusion
. A third set of engineers completed their study
 and once again reached the same conclusion.
 In their final report, however, 
they offered some advice to the Council.

"You are wasting money and time trying to determine
 why the court house collapsed," they said. "
You will be far better off if you accept the facts of the situation. 
Your courthouse is truly a rubble without a cause."
