HOW MANY WATCHES IS THAT?: In 1945, Virginia Saunders began working as a typist (remember them?) for the FBI. A year later, Ms. Saunders changed federal jobs and joined the crew at the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO).
Bless her heart, Virginia's still working there!
This past spring, Saunders celebrated her 63rd year with the GPO, for which she has been responsible for the Congressional Serial Set since 1969. The publication is a casebound compilation of all House and Senate documents and reports for each session of Congress.
"Retirement has crossed my mind, but what else would I do? This is where my heart is," she says.
Perhaps the GPO could honor her decades of dedication by sending her on a cruise. Taxpayer dollars are squandered every day, but this would be money well spent.
