    Policy always trumps process.

    How many people even know that the food stamps program is in agriculture and not health and human services, or that most of the employees of the ag department are glorified park rangers?

    How many people know that a good share of the scientific posts in the federal government are in the commerce department?

    How many people know whether the FBI is in the Department of Homeland Security or the Department of Justice?  Did anyone know that the Coast Guard was in the Transportation Department before the DHS was created?

    The handful of Washington Post readers who actually understand this shit, will also forgive the Democrats for eliminating the Office of Family Planning.
