My Wall Street Journal tribute to the highway department is spurring some incisive comments. I will revise my Blurb List later tonight.
William Gomes, commented posted at WSJ:
The real failure of Mr Bovard’s summer job was, it seems, making him into the bitter and cantankerous individual he is today…. I cannot imagine his colleagues have enjoyed his company in his subsequent jobs.”
[There’s a reason I’ve been self-employed for the last few decades…]
From L.G. in Pocatello, Idaho:
Bovard shares a youthful data-point about learning laziness from a highway department slacker job and draws a downward sloping line through government training experience in general. He learned laziness well. I peeked at his web site photo and note he’s too lazy to shave. Even Bovard’s journalism is low energy.
[Too fatigued to reply to this comment.]
