Why we're broke

Y'know, Sweetheart, you really shouldn't drop your business card on the island when you're using the citizens' credit card to fill up the citizens' car while you're on the citizens' clock, on your way to some place where they need a little consulting and managing.
Some nosy ex-reporter may pick it up, read it, and get to wondering, "What the heck does this woman actually DO for a living?"

That's classic.

Would that be Michelle Cochranes card by chance?

For all I know the person issued the card is a paragon of genius and diligence. She may contribute more to educating our youth than Horace Mann ever did.

The point has nothing to do with a specific person. It has everything to do with the public-sector dimwittery that creates this sort of bloat.

"Robert - Would that be Michelle Cochranes card by chance?"

Does seem to look like it if you read through the blocking paper.

Education, health, nutrition and transportation services?

She rides around in a giant peach?

You've obviously never eaten a high fiber diet. Where do you think all that 'natural gas' those alternative-fuel cars are running on comes from?

Crasher -- Actually it's the "Bureau of Health, Nutrition, Transportation Services, Non-Sexist Textbook Review, and Value-Neutral Prom Decorations." The last couple just wouldn't fit on the card.

I still haven't figured out "Art II." Maybe an advanced placement course in drawing lines without a ruler?

Kevin -- Yes. A giant peach drawn by unicorns.
