In Praise of the Humble Bureaucrat

Not the ex-footballer bureaucrat in question.Welcome, won't you?

Thanks to It Must Be the Neighbors, we now we know what happens to ex-college football stars when they graduate. No, they don't join the NFL. Or at least, they don't if they're accepted into the ranks of one of the noblest and most prestigious sports organizations in the world, the city sanitation department.
