Another report from the reader who calls himself Craig Gernhardt:

Recently promoted to COO of Cermak County Hospital, David Fagus stands in front of the troops barking the day’s marching orders for about a dozen workers I’ve never seen in the neighborhood before.

David Fagus should be making sure his Cermak County Hospital is in running order, but instead it looks like he called in sick today? What’s that called again? I call it violating the Shakman Decree.
