Answer from the Smithsonian

I just got an email today from the Smithsonian, in response to an application I sent in six months ago, for an A/V Operator opening. Back then I would have leapt for it, but now I’m wondering whether I should bother telling them they were too slow, and that I’m now applying for the Dictatorial Overlord of the Castle position.

    As long as you’re not applying for Ruler of the World, it’s fine by me. (Oh, when I get the job, have we discussed what position you would like in my new regime?)

    I worked at SI for six years. There is a reason they call it an institution. Everyone who works there is insane, to a greater or lesser degree. I look back all the daily demoralizing cruelty they call management and I shudder.
