Johnny goes to the library . . . .

My love of books began with a box of crayons. OH! how the black on white needed emphasis! I find my powers of research challenged as literature moves through the digital age. Graduate school presents new information for my enjoyment and consumption. READ ON!!!!!

thinking about it?

Friday, February 02, 2007


In mid 1990s the Dept of Defense was big on TQM (totalitarian quality management). I was only an interested party- bored and trying to pickup on whatever seemed interesting, to pass the time before a) I died of boredom, or b) I died at the hands of an enemy our country had helped to create. Anyway, as almost an assistant to a general staff of 45 generals of the largest corps in the army (ordnance) [I decided to leave the service- a person can take just so much subservience to an ungrateful country]. I became aware of TQM- I didnt know it had originated in Japan, but it sounded good- a good buzz word- made people happy.
I tracked down people trying to implement it from the Pentagon on down. I dragged it down to my level, although nobody I talked to could tell me anything about it. So I figured why beat a dead horse. I dont know if it ever took- they probably renamed it and passed it off as their own- I believe Al Gore of internet fame was vice president at the time. fizzle POOF shizzle
NEXT: to do case study I found it helpful to browse through entire text- I'm glad I thought of it. Life experience helped in writing evaluation.
