2011: Interesting (gulp!) Times

A scholarly colleague reminded me that the old Chinese saying: May You Live In Interesting Times! is actually, according to her, a curse. Like World War 2 was interesting. So were the gasoline shortages of the 1970s, or the pending federal pay freeze.

Interesting, yes; fun, not so much.

So if you are working today, the last day of the year and a holiday for many people, you must like your job and be dedicated to it. And if you are not working today, that’s good too.

Online Chat: Beth Killoran, deputy assistant secretary for Information Technology and chief information officer at HHS, on March 28.

But whether you are on the job or readying to return from a short-winter break, stick with us and fasten your seat belts. As a federal worker, citizen, taxpayer and consumer the year 2011 promises to fall into the Interesting Times category. We’ll be there with you.


Have a happy and safe new year and we hope 2011 is interesting, but not all that interesting if you get my drift!!!
