It's All in the Name.

March 11, 2005 So the "name that fits the job" responses are rolling in, and they're great. Some of the best: Lester Cash, Office of the Budget, Health and Human Services. (Just don't call him "Les"). James Banks, chief of special actions in military pay, Defense Finance and Accounting Service, Indianapolis. Crystal Ball,...

Name Game.

March 9, 2005 OK, it's time to crank up a project first suggested to me more than a decade ago by the former managing editor of GovExec: Put together a list of federal officials (or at least people related in some way to the operations of the federal government) whose names fit their...

Funded Mandates.

March 9, 2005 The House Government Reform Committee may be focusing its attention on the unfunded mandates that the federal government passes on to the states. But there's a flip side to the story. Just ask folks out in Montana, where 46 cents of every dollar the state spends over the next two...

Hollywood and the Homeland.

March 8, 2005 This was inevitable: The Homeland Security Department, like the Pentagon and other agencies, has hired a liaison to work with Hollywood moviemakers and scriptwriters, according to USA Today. Even before adding the new position, the department helped out with last year's Tom Hanks movie The Terminal. That didn't exactly portray...

Army of None.

March 8, 2005 Interesting (but I guess not exactly surprising) quote from the Defense Department report that made the news today about the Army's difficulty in recruiting African-Americans. It turns out that the attitude of all groups of young Americans toward the Army has grown more negative in recent years--not because they'd rather...

Would-Be Whistleblowers.

March 8, 2005 The whistleblower of the day is Andy Eller, former Fish and Wildlife Service biologist, featured in a Post profile. That means the question of the day is whether he's a) a courageous employee who sacrificed his job in the name of truth, justice and the Florida panther; or b) a...

Bono the Bureaucrat.

March 7, 2005 Treasury Secretary John Snow knows how to make a short list that rocks! I'd love to be on the selection committee that has to choose between Bono (an Irish singer who fronts the multi-platinum-selling band U2, for those of you who stopped paying attention to popular music before the early...

Career Moves.

March 4, 2005 What's gotten into President Bush? First John Negroponte, with his four decades of government service, gets to be top dog in the intelligence world. Now Stephen L. Johnson, a 24-year career veteran of the Environmental Protection Agency, gets the nod to become its next director. It's almost as though experience...

Sanitizer-in-Chief.

March 4, 2005 What did President Bush teach former HUD Secretary (now Florida senator) Mel Martinez? To use hand sanitizer "religiously." (Thanks, Scripps-Howard and the Hotline.)

What Did Martha Eat?

March 4, 2005 Stewart, that is. In prison. According to Slate's "Explainer," between 3.90 to 6.31 pounds of food per day, including 0.10 to 0.25 pounds of fat, 0.75 to 1.50 pounds of vegetables, and 1.08 to 1.56 pounds of starches. That's based on Bureau of Prisons dietary guidelines. Kind of amazing that...
