This clip is less than three minutes. In the specific, it tells the story of a 27-year-old college drop-out with two DUIs who beat out two other candidates to head up ‘environmental and regulatory affairs’ for an entire state – despite the fact that one of the other candidates for the $81,500 job has a doctorate, two masters degrees and 8 years’ direct relevant experience, while the other is a chemical engineer who has actually been doing the job for the last 8 years.
But there is a much larger and crucially relevant point made in this elegant video essay – so I urge you to find two minutes and forty-one seconds to watch. Perhaps even right now.
Indeed, I am so eager not to divert attention from this elegant video essay that I will put off to Monday telling you who my favored Republican candidate for President is . . . and some other stuff that will just have to wait.
Have a great weekend. (And, yes, I know it should be ‘whom.’ But doesn’t knowing make it okay to flout the rules?)
