Whatever happened to it?
An anonymous whistleblower's first question to
whoever picks up the phone:
"An Oath of Office"
("getting back to basics")
(Policy Aide to
Supervisor Ken Yeager):
"Yes, all county employees must take an
oath of office
when they start working for the County."

They have my sympathies:
May 30, 2008 Hooray! They're back! I
don't believe it.
It took me months (if not years) to recover when it
happened to me.

It's called malpractice. Not Justice.

A Request for Admission
(March 16, 2007)
My problem is that I'm slow.
The "cover sheet":
Complex Civil cases must be e-filed.
And I can see why. The paperwork alone becomes overwhelming.
e-filing: another learning curve, more time..
"You might sue because you have too many
unanswered questions" I said.
You might sue for your own mental health. Having been made ill
from all that you have learned about a system
(including institutions you believed in) that was supposed to
make you well. Most often money *does* make it work
Because you pay for what you want. It's only when you no
longer have control of it that it malfunctions.
Why does it always decode as money?
Why not sex or some insane obsession (like Capt. Ahab in "Moby
Dick") or something?
"Puzzles" fascinate me -- "why is it broken?".
Alas, all to much to write.. stay tuned.. more to come..
Most people in this world are well-intentioned. And
"..an imperfect world.." -- thanks calling and acknowledging it, it
meant a lot to me.
Here's another one:
"Why won't they tell me their last name?"
Or transfer me to someone
who will. It's like they're all wearing masks.
A corporation with
revenues in the billions: 'Just tell me your last
name' -- that's all.
Why?? When a
policeman pulls you over, he wants to know who you are: your
full name, license number and where you live. All I
want is their last name. Why aren't these people
licensed anyway? (stay tuned..)
