The fine art of Lobbying.. you can too !

A personal tale (second hand).

I have four amazing sisters. And one of them explained to me how it went when she went on a lobbying trip to DC.

My youngest sister is a brilliant high energy physicist whose name is on a lot of papers about some sort of Boson theorized by this Higgs guy. I don't even recognize the mathematical symbols... She and three of her female colleagues went to lobby for funding for CERN experiments. Because the money for the DOE went bye-bye to fund someone's pork barrel project. And the Congresscritter they talked to spent the 15 minute meeting 'explaining physics' to all them little ladies. Who each had a PhD in their field and together more years in research than the pandering fool has been alive. My sister says it was a good thing she wasn't allowed to carry a gun.

It used to be that the sign of a good leader / executive was the ability to listen to people that knew more than they did about a subject.

Not any more. I weep for reality.
