I'm guessing that if you work in a public administration, you may have experienced something like this.

Age 55, retired July 1, 2012; DW is 59 and working for 4 more years. Current portfolio is 1950K split 50 stocks/20 bonds/30 cash. Renting house, no debts.

Very funny and eerily accurate. My agency just bristles with an advisory board and various specially-named committees which churn out basically nonsense or what we all know already.

Our big boss, dept head, is in meetings all day. No kidding. You can't even pop in to say hello, she is never there.
