Chief 'reality' officer

This from WP's Al Karmen this morning:

Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld has vowed to change the military. And if there were any doubts, check the want ads in last Sunday's Washington Post.

"Senior Air Force Reality Officer," says an ad for a job paying $107,521 to $139,774. Responsibilities are "worldwide." This is a big, quite existential job, calling on a broad array of skills.

Applicants must also be able to handle "disposal of real estate assets."
