Pat, I don't see an error message but, I was expecting this to fail 
(which it doesn't, therefore suggesting the spec is broken);

it "should not include any inactive users in an assigned array of user 
results " do
  assigns[:results].should_not include(users)

I was under the assumption that the above spec checks that we don't have 
any of the users fixtures in the :results. The spec uses this;

   def do_get
     get :people, :search => "bob"

...so shouldn't the spec fail if we're returning all the users fixtures 
when assigns[:results].should_not include(users)?
