    Idiot award goes to - Wayne Cnty. MI. Dept of Public Works - Gun related

    You won't believe this one, folks

    Detroit groundskeeper fired after finding loaded gun, handing it to cops | Fox News

    With national news coverage I wouldn't be surprised if the grounds keeper and the foreman get reinstated. But, they never should have been fired.
    Why, oh why, are there so many pinheads in positions of authority?

    Angry Just Another Day In Wayne County, MI

    Tom, I too am a not sooooo proud resident of the criminal county of Wayne. However, you miss the real reason for his termination........he was only two years from becoming eligible for retirement. With Chief Executive Crook Robert F*ckano handing out $100K-$200K severance packages to all his criminal cohorts, money has to be saved from some where, and you can only cut workers pay and medical benefits so much.

    I thought of that, too. The article says the foreman has 23 yrs. on the job. The grounds keeper is two years shy of retirement.
    Nice to know your bosses have your back after so many years of working there.

    It is the Nature of mechanized, compartmentalized institution and bureaucracies to produce these qualities of 'decisions'.

    They have no choice, since everything is 'policy' and or the dry 'letter' of policy, or 'the letter of the law', and if 'policy' or 'law' is not adhered to strictly, administrators or managers get fired.

    Seems a very bad substitute for character and intelligence, but, then, that IS what mechanized, compartmentalized institutions and bureaucracies and 'laws' were created for, and, that is what they offer - a substitute for character and intelligence, and, reliably, as a substitute, they fail to emulate or encourage or support either one.
