Agree. I lost a good job due to downsizing. There were documented success and positive evaluations over a six year period. It was cost savings. Now it is difficult to me to see failure go unrecognized; particularly at the level of tOSU.

I recall the excitement when a friend brought some back from a tour of the Coors facilities. Times, indeed, have changed.

And I must be at the outer range of "middle age" because this was before they had made a Coors Lite or any other "Lite" for that matter.  :-)

Great point! The more I thought about it, relative to my time in service, the more I agreed. Thanks.

Been here 6 years and the place is beautiful. But the island moves at a slow pace. You get used to it but the government is the most inefficient organization I have seen, bureaucracy is absolute worst. Saying a lot after active duty in US Army. lol

You are right though would not trade the experience for anything. Next stop Reno, where I may shoot a man just to watch him die. (Johnny Cash reference for those questioning my mental health further).

Best thing: my wife scheduled the move to Reno for 10/31 because of the bye week. I am blessed.

It depends on the perspective. Source: absence of all color. Reflective material: presence of all color. Former=black. Latter=black.

Also agree with previous poster. To wear something else to make a statement seems childish and selfish, unless of course you have no other options and cannot afford it. Of course that would not be making a statement but just wanting to go see a great team play football.

You could not be more wrong. The costs of drugs and supplies versus the reimbursement from government and other third parties make cost cutting happen on a regular basis. I just lost a job as a director of pharmacy after 6 years of very high performance. They gave the job to my assistant, 2 years out of school on her first hospital job.
