Idle Hands

California Department of Education employee posted approximately 4,900 comments on The Sacramento Bee's website between December 2010 and December 2011, according to a state report released this morning that details several lapses, abuses and illegal acts by state workers and agencies.
Investigators found that the education employee posted comments on sacbee.com 195 days of the 208 days he was at work, averaging about 25 comments per day. On his most active day he wrote 70 comments on sacbee.com during business hours.
Quizzed by auditors, the unnamed employee offered several explanations.
First, he said, his online postings were limited to his break times. Auditors looked at online comment records and found otherwise.
Then the employee said his commenting activity fulfilled his job obligation to follow educational technology news. Auditors knocked that down, too: "Although the employee's duty statement allocated 15 percent of his time to technical research and analysis, it made no mention of using state time to post public commentary regarding the results of his research."

The hits just keep on coming.

"Idle Hands" was a great movie.

People don't understand what makes a great movie. Talent, story, arc, titillation. This is why we at some level appreciate "Indiana Jones III" and "Idle Hands" and "White Christmas."

No doubt the ultimate resolution on the backs of the tax payer.

Here we go again:


'"The era of increasing homeownership affordability in big cities is ending," researchers from Trulia wrote in a recent report. While the price recovery is choppy market-to-market, strong rental markets like Denver, Seattle and San Francisco are seeing home prices leap ahead of rents.'

They're going to need to keep rates down for quite a while longer, but when the finally pop, boo-yaah!

If CalPERS is set up like other states, he can go out on disability for that job, then get another job and double dip. In Ohio, state ees in PERS can triple dip. Ahhhh, the system.

[Insert government worker joke here]


Each episode featured Scooby and the four teenaged members of The Mystery Gang: Fred, Shaggy, Daphne and Velma, arriving at a location in the "Mystery Machine" and encountering a ghost, monster, or other supernatural creature, who was terrorizing the local populace. After splitting up and looking for clues and suspects and being chased by the monster, the kids come to realize the ghost and other paranormal activity is actually an elaborate hoax, and - often with the help of a Rube Goldberg-like trap designed by Fred - they capture the villain and unmask him. The unmasking is usually preceded by a member of the gang saying "now lets see who the [name of monster] really is". Revealed as a flesh and blood crook trying to cover up crimes by using the ghost story and costume, the criminal is arrested and taken to jail, often repeating something nearly identical to "...and I would have gotten away with it, too, if it hadn't been for you meddling kids!"
