At least one reader was bored by my last post, about the number of people on the city payroll. Several others decided it was as good an excuse as any to lash out at the mayor, people with AIDS, and each other. And one person said he'd like to see how many workers populate each of the city's departments. For him and anyone else who might care, I'm putting the figures below. For those don't give a rip, it's at least another occasion to tell us all about it.
