  this reminds of the drunk who staggered around a lamppost and seemed like
  he looked for something.  a helpful man asks him "are you looking for
  something?"  "yes, my watch!"  the helpful man looks, too, and there's no
  watch to be seen.  "did you lose it here?"  "no, I lost it over there",
  the drunk says and points to a dark doorway.  "but why are you looking
  here?"  "because there's better light here!"

  (I'm not insinuating that your manager was drunk.)

  suppose we blasted all politicians into space.
  would the SETI project find even one of them?
