+ - Faith-based highways in Texas->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes: Rick Perry and Phil Graham have appointed a lobbyist, Phil Wilson, to head the Texas highway department. Wilson has no engineering background whatsoever, he just knew the right people. (The prior P.E. requirement for this job had to be removed so he could be appointed.) His salary will be double that of the last head of the department, an engineer. Yes, a national search for the best candidate was conducted at a cost of $57,000 and Wilson was the winner!

It looks as though Perry and Phil Graham's man had the inside track to head the highway department. No, no promotion from within, no engineering background whatsoever, he just knew the right people. Welcome to the world of faith-based highways...

Wilson's salary will be double that of the recent head of the department. A national search for the best candidate was conducted at a cost of $57,000 and Wilson was the winner!
