Just a taste:

One member of the White House's new media team came to work right 
after the swearing-in ceremony, only to discover that it was 
impossible to know which programs could be updated, or even which 
computers could be used for which purposes. The team, accustomed to 
working on Macintosh computers, found machines outfitted with 
six-year-old versions of Microsoft software. Laptops were scarce, 
assigned to only a few people in the West Wing.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
