Jacques and the beanstalk revisited (Fiction)

My Lanterne Rouge column from the Red Dirt Pedalers newsletter "Wheel Issues" is over on the Examiner. I needed a change from writing news and advocacy pieces, and doing something that's more in line with humor is just that kind of refreshing change.

As is often the case, this one grew out of something in real life. We learned this week that our company is hiring yet another in an endless string of consultants - people who want to tell us how to do what we already know how to do.

In all honesty, though, I have to admit that I'd like to be a consultant when I grow up, even though it doesn't bring the high social standing of being, say, a pimp or a drug dealer.
