On Behalf Of JW had a litany of complaints about the competence and work
ethic of a nominal superior, ending with:
> Yes, I've mentioned various things about him to higher-up management
> they keep the blinders on and don't acknowledge my concerns. Isn't it
> easier to keep incompetent people around than it is to fire them?

It's obvious... the answer is goat pictures.

This guy has pictures of senior people in compromising positions with a
goat. That's why he has no fear, and why nobody will touch him.

Glad I could assist you in figuring that out.

Someday soon, slap a pleased expression on your face and start humming
cheerily (something like "I'm In the Money") in the presence of one of
these higher-ups. When you get the inevitable "What are you so happy
about, today?" just smile and reply: "I've found where Joe keeps the
goat pictures. "
