Or do you agree that the risk of blackmail does but sensitive information at risk? It's an especially interesting and relevant discussion considering the recent…See More

Lindy Kyzer replied to Scott Horvath's discussion 'The 4-Hour Work Week...Will Government Ever Get There?'
"I think if we refer to it as the 'four hour work-week' - no. There's a bit of a PR issue there in the fact that defining a work-week by any set number of hours spells big trouble, especially in government, where issues of…"

I work for the government because:
I have always had a passion for our military and the mission of our Armed Forces. It has always made me proud to work in service of our men and women in uniform. I was blessed to do it for several years as a Department of the Army civilian, and am now enjoying new life as a consultant, working with government agencies as well as private organizations. I believe our government can always improve, and it takes the action of each and every civil servant to move it forward.
