Are the recent GSA and Secret Service scandals the tip of the iceberg or just business as usual? Senior Correspondent Mike Causey asks. Is Uncle Sam, in reality, more like Charlie Sheen than an Eagle Scout?

How would you like it if your spouse or significant other rated your performance, then made his/her findings known to friends and neighbors? In this fantasy world, you would naturally hope your performance would be rated as superior, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. But what if you were rated less-than-satisfactory? Would you vow to get better, or would you really rather not even know?
Is the performance-rating system in your agency rigged? Does a bear shed in the woods? Despite its noble intent, many workers say performance ratings where they work measure just about everything but performance, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
Even if you never, or hardly ever, go to a Post Office there's a good chance you went there Tuesday to mail your taxes, and get an SOS from some worried postal employees, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
