Letter to the editor
I find it interesting but not surprising that a political flack would ascribe
the problems within government information technology to be those of the
employees and not those of their managers ["Daniels: Fed IT workers not the best"].
If we are to accept that government workers are substandard or at least
of lesser quality than the workers that name-brand commercial firms can
acquire then the same should be said of the inferior and lesser-quality
managers that so desire to lead these talentless IT workers.
Daniels obviously is tainted by the company he keeps and must be regarded
as no better than they are. What an inspired leadership example he provides
publicly castigating a workforce than is burdened by political flacks
and commercially unfit despots.
