Life imitates The Office

When Gareth says it, it's funny. When the head of FEMA says it, less funny. From Time magazine's How Reliable Is Brown's Resume?:
"Brown's biography on the Federal Emergency Management Agency Web site says he had once served as an "assistant city manager with emergency services oversight"....

However, a city spokeswoman told the magazine Brown had actually worked as "an assistant to the city manager.""

"The assistant is more like an intern," Claudia Deakins told the magazine. "Department heads did not report to him."
And now he's going back to Washington to oversee future disasters. Because if anyone deserved a lateral move, it's this guy.

That would be hilarious. If it wasn't so. You know. Likely to risk people's lives because she lied about her previous job.
