On the SECDEF's efficiencies initiative and the poor GOs

Slate's got a funny cartoon up -- apparently by a Jack Ohman -- about Secretary Gates' comments on the profusion of general officers at the Pentagon ("a substantial increase in the most senior leadership... a situation where personnel of higher and higher rank are assigned to do things that could reasonably be handled by personnel of lower rank").

It's not quite this bad, but it ain't far off from that with GS-15s/YA-3s and colonels.
