My comment on mushroom management was primarily for humor only and perhaps I shouldn’t have applied it to our government. I learned it in 1981 while at GE when my coworkers told me that “they practice mushroom management here…..they keep us in the dark and feed us a lot of shit…” We all laughed.
PS. I am going on 39 years of peaceful, wedded bliss……. and 2 of them were good! But at my age I can’t remember which 2!
