I just returned from talking with the people demonstrating in front of the TAPS headquarters here in Sherman. I understand their frustrations, and I’m glad I had a chance to hear them out. Interestingly, each one of those folks was a star player for TAPS in the job they were doing. Each of them feels betrayed, because they did care and they did work hard right up to the last. With more than 60% of all TAPS employees —from the top to the bottom— leaving the building, it’s unusually quiet in the hallways. I miss the noise already.
