playing in the background...
...have figured out that the Congressional committee that wrote this report was a bit
displeased with the ATSDR's performance.
To say the least.
Knowing this, we can cross off (C) right from the get-go. The committee would have to be
wearing some serious kid gloves to let the ATSDR off that easy.
It's kind of hard to imagine them giving the ATSDR a hug and telling them they'll
do better next time.
Choice (A) takes it to another extreme.
While the committee isn't going to give the ATSDR an A for effort, they also don't
want to destroy the agency entirely.
In our experience with tearing down and replacing government agencies...
OK, we have no experience in that department, but we're totally sure it would be more
effort than it's worth.
Choice (B) seems like a reasonable solution, or at least one that would make sense to most people.
Take the guys in charge, who perpetrated the crimes, and make them pay for what they did.
That way future leaders of the agency would know the cost of making the same mistakes.
Luckily for the guys who run the ATSDR, however, that's not what this report proposes.
Hm, you sure about this one, Congress?
It turns out that the report explicitly states that answer (D) is the way to address the agency's problems.
The committee just really wants the ATSDR to put their backs into it and...you know...actually do their job.
Seems like there might actually have been some kid gloves involved here...
