|Do you remember the old Henny Youngman joke where a patient goes to the doctor and is told he has 30 days to live? When he doesn’t have enough money to pay the bill the Doctor gives him another 30 days.
Well Henny would have been proud of Governor Patterson.
On June 12 the Governor demanded that Christopher Ward get back to him with a report detailing the status of the rebuilding effort at Ground Zero.
So 18 days pass the new Executive Director comes up with nothing and the Governor gives him another 90 days.
If any of us did that with our bosses we would be shown the door.
But not at Ground Zero where incompetence has been rewarded for the last seven years and it does not look like it is going to change any time soon.
Now they are even talking about putting together a governing board of representatives.
Just what we need another level of bureaucracy.
And what will we get from this collection of bureaucrats.
More memos like the one we got today because as Charles Peters said “Bureaucrats write memoranda both because they appear to be busy when they are writing and because the memos, once written, immediately become proof that they were busy”.
And Silverstein laughs all the way to the bank.
More of the same at Ground Zero.
