MORE DETAIL THAN WE NEEDED

Filed at 12:51 pm under by dcobranchi

It must have been a very slow news day in Washington. The WaPo apparently needed to fill up column-inches. How else to explain the following, from an article on the never-ending quest for a new superintendent?

Seventeen search committee members worked into the night Friday without pause, even interviewing one candidate over a catered dinner that included Caesar and tomato salads, side dishes of asparagus and broccoli and a choice of chicken, salmon or roast beef.

Maybe the reporter is bucking for a restaurant critic gig.

hmmm…lets see…
There’s two kinds of salad, both asparagus and broccoli as sides, and they were trying to make him take the job by seeing all that green maybe? I wonder what color the meats were, sam-I-am. 😉

I see that they whine and dine, on the taxpayer’s dime.

I did spell whine correctly. 😉
