Rants about federal government ineptitude – read Obamacare – are all the rage these days.
But wait . . .
Back in the ’70s, the hard scrabbling staff worked at the Social Security Administration (civil service tests being the last resort of the liberal arts major) for a mercifully brief 18 months (see The Redemption Unit for details). And during that time, we stole a whole lot of ballpoint pens.
Some of which still work.
So don’t tell us the federal government doesn’t do anything write – sorry, right.
You can steal damn good pens from it.
