John Sprinkle

I attended the lecture session at 7pm in which John Sprinkle discussed the history and significance of the Executive Order 11935. This order was created by Nixon in 1971 and it stated that all federal agencies were to make a list of all their historical building within two years. John said that the fact that this did not get done in two years was good in that it allowed for him and all his colleagues to have a career. One thing I personally took from this lecture is that they way in which American legislation and politics works makes it very hard to get anything done. His example of the debate over the old Post Office showed that different levels and different areas of government constantly conflict.
