154. Awards
My workplace gives out an award for cleanest desk. I'm a bit concerned that this guy's awards are for something similar. I do know that in the medical profession there are lots and lots of awards handed out for no real reason besides being able to say things like "14 awards over the past 16 years".

Unfortunately the article has no data, so for the time being I can only call him a hack based on the limited information. If the article had any data then I could figure out if more inflamatory terms are appropriate.
