Show me the issues!

I think it's time to start a grassroots campaign. No, I'm not running for president, don't worry. What I want to see though is more debates, more discussion, more discovery. It has become apparent that the country is losing touch with its own problems. Unless we have a reality show telling us about an epidemic (The Biggest Loser attacking obesity), we are simply unaware. It's time to get a fresh, hip TV show to educate people about what is going on in this country.

At least one of my readers (Dude, you have more than one reader? I don't think so. And you don't count!) will probably say that this is very idealistic and not very realistic. Well maybe, but I am volunteering myself. I am officially tossing my hat into the ring of potential TV talk show hosts. Now all I need is a network, a co-host, and some guests. I'll get right on that. I plan to continue the movement that people like Jon Stewart started, but have an even wider array of discussion topics. We're not just talking politics here (though it will find it's way in a lot), we're talking about the issues facing real Amerkans (obligatory Bush jab).

So if any of you have strings you can pull with any television stations let me know. Public Access here I come!

You're not the boss of me now

So one of my co-workers quit over the weekend. No notice, he just found another job and turned his his key here. My boss admittedly "didn't like him" and she made it show. So he left.

So now we're down a person, and bosslady is scrambling to find someone to replace him. The problem is, she has no sales experience, and we are essentially sales people. This is just another example of people sticking around long enough to be promoted.

My question is this: How do we tell my boss's boss that she is killing office morale and making people leave? He's the president of the company and doesn't have his hands in too much of the operations, he just hangs around long enough to make sure we're making money and then heads off to the golf course.

I'd rather keep my job until I find something else, so as much as my leaving would make a statement, I can't really do that right now. Feel free to share any stories of workplace drama in your responses.
