This final note today. The head of the General Services Administration -- essentially the federal government's landlord and business manager -- resigned today. The Washington Post reports Martha Johnson has stepped down after she spent $835,000 on an employee training conference in Las Vegas.
Included in the line items? $147,000 in airfare; $6,300 on commemorative coin sets; and $3,200 on a mind reader.
Shoulda seen that one coming, I guess.
