             (Anonymous, sent in by an AtE subscriber)     (1/5/1990) 

In the beginning was the plan
And then came the assumptions;
And the assumptions were without form;
And the plan was completely without substance;
And darkness was upon the faces of the workers;
And they spake to their supervisors, saying:
"The plan is a crock of shit and it stinks."

And the supervisors went to their section heads and said:
"It is a pail of dung and none may abide the odor thereof."

And the section heads went to their managers
And said unto them:
"It is a container of excrement and it is very strong,
Such that none here may abide by it."

And the managers went unto the deputy area DOE director
And said unto him:
"It is a vessel of fertilizer and none may abide its strength."

And the deputy area DOE director went unto the area DOE director
And said unto him:
"It contains that which aids plant growth and it is very strong."

And the area DOE director went to the DOE director
And said unto him:
"It promotes growth and is very powerful."

And the DOE director went unto the administration
And said unto them:
"This powerful new plan will actively promote the growth and 
     efficiency of the department and this area in particular."

And the administration looked upon the plan and saw it was good
And the plan became policy.
