Scandal of the Day: Interior Department Rocked by Ethics Scandal

So government officials and energy company employees are doing literally to each other what they are both doing figuratively to us.

As a government employee, I'd like to point out that we're not all bad apples.

No offense, I know you aren't. I was thinking more in terms of Bush political hack appointees.

I wasn't offended. I just like to remind people that not all Federal employees are like that. :)
