Losing at pub night trivia.

You can draft one person in the private sector to work for the federal government. Who would it be, and what would you have them do?

Well, I listed my beautiful home for sale this morning! It's my initial move in a slow transition to retirement. I'll be going from Long Island to coastal South Carolina where I have plenty of family. It's the best day I've had in a long time! Now if only the house goes quickly...
