How many government employees does it take to change a light bulb?

Cassandra, who heads the Arizona Governor's Office for Children, Youth, and Families, where I work, had requested that a light bulb be installed in her office. She wanted something that would sit over her head or something so that she could read better.

So she puts in her request with the powers that be, and a week later a guy comes down to her office to appraise the situation. He nods, and then comes back with two more people: a guy holding some kind of meter, and a "lighting hygienist." The lighting hygienist takes a look around, turns on all the lights (including the lights under the desk, which Cassandra never uses), and has Cassandra sit in her chair. Well, the lighting is fine, she says, but I think your computer monitor may be angled too high...
