. . . has spent in excess of 29 hours visiting us at Popehat, reading for an average of 21 minutes per visit, each time from his or her state-government computer, presumably at work.
I am familiar with the state in question — it's less dysfunctional than my own beloved State of California, and taxed a hell of a lot less. Nonetheless, I am sure there are some (especially in that rather conservative and Tea-Party-intensive state) that would object to a state employee spending 29 hours of taypayer-funded time at Popehat.
Having been a government employee, and being professionally occupied with dealing with state and local employees, I respectfully dissent. The state in question, my own state, and indeed all of these majestic United States would run more smoothly if we paid government employees to read Popehat regularly rather than engage in regulating, prosecuting, and otherwise annoying us. And dare I say that we would have a salutary effect on governance? Yes. Yes I do dare say that.
