The Wall knows and demands, "Feed me!"

We just learned that one of our proposals won, to the tune of $49 million.

The proposal center manager sent us the following message:

It looks like we won are on a roll. [Yep, she omitted "and."] We need to put the cover of this proposal on the wall.

A continuation of no thank you's, no bonuses, no attempt to get us raises, which have been postponed indefinitely in light of the economy. But, by all means we must add the proposal cover to our "win wall."

My response to her email, copied to everyone in the center, was:

I’m sure the wall will be very pleased to receive additional compensation, of a kind. And if it could speak, it would utter a great big "THANK YOU."
