It was not my intention to post during the day; I had a full morning and my commute was taken up by working on a new screenplay (now you know: I work on screenplays), and I have a lot on my plate here at work.

But I’ve been working over the past week to get my organization in compliance with something called the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and to that end I’ve been investigating “whistle blower” services.  So if anyone here wants to narc on the organization or someone within the organization, they can do so without fear of reprisal.  Sure, it sounds like an unnecessary artifice at first, but if you want to complain about human resources and the vice president of the organization, and the vice president happens to run human resources, well… goddamn.

There are a number of better examples, but as you may have inferred, I’m writing this on the fly. 

Also, for those writers out there: having a straight job is remarkable for purposes of gathering material.  Don’t do it too long or your eyes’ll start to bleed and your face will stay that way.  But for awhile, it’s good.  Also helps to have skills to fall back on.

Anyway, I place a call to get a quote on services, and I get an email with several attachments, including a brochure highlighting the organization’s shift into the compliance/whistleblowing business. 

The picture on the cover of that brochure?

I don’t know what this means, but I think I like it. 

I got a feeling that tonight’s gonna be a good night.  Yes, tonight’s gonna be a good, good night.
