I'm more ethical!

I was just reminded, on schedule, for the fourth time in four years, that "The Ethics Act (5 ILCS 430/5 10) states that, beginning in 2004, each officer, member, and employee must complete, at least annually, an ethics training program conducted by the appropriate state agency."

So I'm now wasting taxpayer dollars using up an hour's salary going through idiotic web pages instructing me that it's not ethical to use state resources for personal gain, to influence the business the state does with private companies, and similar inanity.

[edit: The training ends with the statement "Thank you for investing the time in renewing your knowledge about ethics as a state employee." Like I had any choice. Dillholes.]
