They really are going public

I suppose this is standard operating procedure, but it's still amusing to come across a want ad for the job of Texas Lottery Commission Executive Director. At least, I assume it's standard procedure, since one presumes that Reagan Greer, who'd gotten the job as a patronage prize from Governor Perry, didn't decide to apply for it after seeing it in his Sunday paper. Let's see what the requirements are:

Performs highly advanced management activities with broad oversight responsibility. Exercises strict control and supervision over all lottery games conducted by the Commission.

The joke is left as an exercise for the reader.

Through leadership, example, and daily conduct, promotes and ensures integrity, security, honesty, and fairness in the operation and administration of the lottery.

OK, I can't resist: Is it just me, or does anyone think that the TLC composed this ad by starting off with a list of things Reagan Greer wasn't?

The job is listed as "open until filled", so click the link to find out more. Many thanks to the eagle-eyed Anne for the tip.
