Honoring the 1 percent

applause

No, not that 1 percent -- FCW tries to steer clear of class warfare. This 1 percent represents the best of the best among career federal executives.

On April 25, the Senior Executives Association Professional Development League will honor the 2012 Presidential Distinguished Rank Awardees -- both Senior Executive Service members and Senior Professionals -- with its annual black-tie banquet in the State Department's Diplomatic Reception Rooms.

It's an exclusive gathering, largely limited to the honorees and a select few SEA members. But there is another way: industry types hoping to be in the room -- or simply to support the gala honoring the 2012 awardees -- can contact SEA President Carol A. Bonosaro about contribution options.

Thu, Mar 7, 2013 not where they are

I find it interesting that they are meeting in the facilities of the State Department, a department apparently dedicated to “to protect Israelis”, instead of the Department of the Interior. If they were holding their self importance celebration in the meeting hall of an Indian reservation, I might think they were demonstrating their recognition of their responsibilities to the indigenous populations of the world, including some US Citizens. But, clearly, they are not.

Let them eat cake, listen to fiddle music and pat themselves on their collective backs in their black ties. For my part I will honor the people that run the water treatment plants, landfills and teach our children. The more important the job is to our society the less it pays and thereby the less we show that we, as a nation, are grateful.

It is easer for a rope to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to pass through the gates of heaven.
