Let me be the first to welcome you to POGO’s Water Cooler!
We’ve created this site with a simple goal in mind: to expose the lighter side of POGO. As many of you know, holding the federal government accountable is no easy task. While we might get caught up in our investigations sometimes–our heads swimming with ideas like sole-source contracting and lead system integrators–we never forget to stop and laugh at the all the stupidity and craziness that surrounds us here in D.C. We hope this site will give us the opportunity to show you just how fun our work can be.
What can you expect to find at the Water Cooler? Reviews of our favorite whistleblower movies and books; pictures from our fundraisers and parties in the D.C. area; a behind-the-scenes look at the POGO offices and staff; links to our favorite offbeat news stories; and more.
Most importantly, we want to hear from you. Have you read a story recently about government corruption that made you laugh or cry? Did you see Jon Stewart poking fun at the federal government on the Daily Show? Do you just want to show off your insane pogo stick skills? We’d love to hear from you! Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas and suggestions.
Thanks for checking us out, and I hope to see you back at the Water Cooler!
