One of the saddest comments ever received here…

In April, I posted about the IT Consolidation at the State Department based on a published OIG review (read State Dept IRM’s IT Consolidation Gets a Screaming “F”): This week, this blog received exactly one comment on that post. I normally do not re-post comments. But I thought this one was different.

Your quote,

“…if somebody had the courage to say “hey, this idea is full of sh*t.” But that’s only like, well like committing career hara-kiri, and nobody does that too often in the bureaucracy. Because when you “die” in a bureaucracy, you don’t necessarily get kicked out, you just get ignored in your cubicle until you, well — dry out, crisp as autumn leaves and get swept out by the char force one night when nobody is looking….”

That was me.

“That was me.”

Three words, no fluff. That probably is one of the saddest lines I’ve ever received in this blog.
