Letter to the Editor

I have to agree with many of the readers responding to the article about limited (ab)use. [Letters to the Editor, March 22 and March 26, 2001.]

Although it makes sense on both sides, the issue that most comments focus on is that the user will abuse the resource. I have to agree.

But look at it from management's perspective. It's not a matter of focusing on the use of resources or equipment. It's another form of management indiscretion: How can managers target an employee who is doing the same thing everyone else is but make it seem that this one individual is not using government equipment in a limited way.

I can see this ending up costing President Bush's new budget more tax dollars than he expected in legal costs.
