The Politics of the Candy Jar at Work
You thought the staff meetings where they talk about who’s responsible for filling the candy jar at the reception desk were difficult!
Looks like the non-re-election of Rick Santorum from Pennsylvania will have a lasting effect on the Senate.
Santorum was responsible for the “candy desk” which has been around since the sixties. Anyone holding that desk has traditionally been responsible for supplying treats to the Senators and staff. Santorum, as the Pennsylvania Senator, was given candy by his home state producers (Just Born, Goldenberg’s & Hershey’s) as ethics rules allow. But the new occupant of the seat is from a non-sweet producing state, Wyoming.
Meticulously photographed and documented reviews of candy from around the world. And the occasional other sweet adventures. Open your mouth, expand your mind.
