In today's "me-first" society, it's refreshing to see that the director of the CIA, Porker, err Porter Goss is resigning--obviously to spend more time with his family. Trying not to be out done, the #3 man at the agency, Kyle "Dusty" Foggo, has followed suit in following his boss out the door and into his own family's life.

See more acts of unselfishness AND offer some helpful suggesstions below the fold:

Say what we want about the course of the country under the current administation, but this is concrete evidence that these gentlemen truely put the VALUE in Family Values. Please join me in commending this act of selflessness and also in applauding the same for Tom DeLay, Tom Ridge, Christie Todd Whitman, George Tenet, Colin Powell, Ted Olsen, Ari Fleisher, Scott McClellan, and John Ashcroft. All have resigned, without question "to spend more time with their families."

It's clear that working in (and with) this administration leaves even the most career-minded professional yearning to spend more time with his or her loved-ones. In the spirit of family, which current government employee should we encourage to follow these true patriots lead, and resign in order to spend more time with his or her family?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
