Absent Minded or Just Absent?
The more I have thought about it, I began to notice that all of these things have one thread in common. ATTENDANCE. I get paid for showing up at work. My kids school gets paid based on their attendance. The IRS counts on me working everyday so they can collect more taxes. The family is starting to figure out who is attending which holiday parties and dinners.
Just about everything is based on attendance. John Kerry has been getting hit for missing votes in the Senate. The President catches flack for vacationing in Texas every other week. Our current Mayor is absent-minded and was absent for 9/11. People have even commented here and at the Fourth Floor regarding council members attendance and tardiness.
Maybe it is time for a Freedom of Information Act request soliciting their attendance records. Maybe then we will find out just how many junkets and non-work related trips our leaders have taken out of state.
How would you grade their attendance?
