Treasure Hunt.

November 15, 2004 In case you've managed to miss the endless promos, trailers and commercials for the new movie National Treasure, one of its central plot lines involves a treasure map on the back of the Declaration of Independence. Preposterous, no? Well, now comes word from the National Archives that there really is...

Hey Porter.

November 13, 2004 Would the last one out the door at the CIA please turn out the lights? First, Mike Scheuer, the former chief of the unit tracking Osama bin Laden, quits so he can criticize the agency even more vociferously. Then, AP reporter (and former GovExec intern) Katherine Pfleger Shrader reports this...

Thanks, Veterans.

November 11, 2004 "Nobody can tell me they wasn't scared. The worst part is when you're waiting to go into combat. After the fighting started, it was just a little different.

November 10, 2004 I'm starting to feel bad that I ever suggested Starbucks was a less-than-enthusiastic supporter of military forces overseas. Today, the company announced it has teamed up with the Red Cross to provide 50,000 pounds of free coffee to troops serving in Kuwait, Afghanistan and Iraq.

Didn't We Learn Anything From the Clinton Administration?

November 10, 2004 Headline on yet another AP campaign post-mortem: "Women Say Kerry Should Have Wooed Them."

Big Fat Crusade.

November 10, 2004 Who said the nanny state is dead? The ongoing federal obsession with Americans' weight continues apace, as the Federal Trade Commission sues six companies over weight-loss claims. Gotta love the name of the initiative, though: Operation Big Fat Lie.

Well, Thank Goodness That's Over.

November 10, 2004 "The objective of securing the safety of Americans from crime and terror has been achieved."--Attorney General John Ashcroft in his resignation letter.

Intelligent Management.

November 10, 2004 As the House and Senate continue to go back and forth on the issue of creating a national intelligence director, one gets a creeping feeling: from a management perspective, this is almost destined to end badly. We're now at the stage where a legitimate question--who should control the massive, widely...

Beam Me Up.

November 9, 2004 I have no idea how I missed this last week, but I can't let it pass unnoticed. USA Today reported that the Air Force paid $25,000 to one Eric W. Davis of Warp Drive Metrics in Las Vegas for a study of various forms of teleportation. And it got its...
