1. Very reminiscent of the way the NYC school system works.

Upper echelons are concerned w. #s and quotas and the people doing the work are worried about retaliation if they don't fall in line.

It's mostly a bureaucratic thing that goes back decades but Bloomberg has added his own ugly twist to it.

3. Thanks KIR, and Nation.
