'Jetson, You're Fired!'

"Even the Jetsons needed someone to push the buttons."

-- California employee Rod Breitmaier, responding to Cosmo G. Spacely-like suggestions by two leading candidates for governor there that technology can help significantly reduce the state's public workforce.

Breitmaier, a 13-year employee at the California motor vehicle department, made his comment in a story by Sacramento Bee's "State Worker" blogger Jon Ortiz. The comment also was picked up in's daily "Who Said That?" feature.

Hope Breitmaier isn't too worried. There's always work to be done at Spacely Space Sprockets Inc., once ranked the 25th largest fictional company by Forbes.
