THE NEXT LOBBYING SCANDAL? -- "As Eric Lipton reported in The Times this week, at least 90 top Homeland Security officials have gone through that famous revolving door between the government and the lobbying industry. That's more than two-thirds of the most senior executives from the department's infancy. It is hard to believe that the people running an agency that performs so badly could be so much in demand."

This pattern leads somewhere. Just not clear where it leads or when we'll get there, but one would be safe in assuming that it is nowhere good and it will be sooner rather than later.
