We moan and groan about the DVDs purchased for training material at work… with nary a player in sight. We wonder why an office automation tech could not be hired, at a modest salary, to better take advantage of the technology already paid for… gaining hundreds (if not thousands) of hours of productivity on the cheap.
The fact is the world is filled with stupid people. Too often we take this fact for granted. What really hurts is that these are the folks that give public employ a bad name. The public perception paints with a broad brush, and it only takes a few bad decisions to color us all incompetent. This is the insult to our injury.
