    Interesting work dynamic at play here. Feenky seems well-adjusted to being hung over by his bosses to keep him steady. I get the impression that without such guidance, somebody could come along and provide their own, subverting not just Feenky but the GOB police forces. Could come in handy, having that ability. Just noticing.

      For me, carrot first, then the whip.

      That came out much kinkier than I intended.

      HEY! YOU! Put those slips back in the closet!

      It really stands out, doesn’t it? I don’t know if Emily arranged it that way, or if she just made the best choice out of a welter of bad candidates. But it’s bad news to leave behind a subservient character as your successor. Reminds me of one of the key rules of management:

      First-class people choose first-class people.
      Second-class people choose third-class people.
