GSA's picklegate

Attendees at the GSA Expo, held last week in San Antonio, said the event was much toned down compared to previous years, with fewer government attendees and fewer parties.

That's a natural reaction to the recent scandal the General Services Administration has weathered regarding egregious overspending at a conference in 2010, detailed in a recent Inspector General report. But perhaps one very telling sign of the new frugality was in the box lunches.

They had no pickles. Apparently, the cost of the pickle pushed the price of the box lunch over the limit.

As long as they had chips, rather have the chips over a pickle any old time.
