I got a comment overnight from a guy at this blog. He's thinking outside the box. Waaay outside the box.
He asks, why are so many government buildings empty evenings and nights. Shutter some buildings and keep others open 24-7 and you'd save enough to pay for health care reform.
Maybe we could pick two departments as an experiment. Move them in together and see if there's savings from closing one building.
Or anarchy as everyone tries to get the normal daylight shift and fusses about moving to graveyard shift.
Think of the reduced traffic. Think of the unhappy employees. Someone should see what the Obama administration thinks about this.
Not me. It's 5 o'clock somewhere.
