I agree-- I worked for the TMO 3 times for a little less than two
and a half years total (1977-1981).
Though the power trips that some of the governors were on were
magnified because everyone lived together, no one ever tried to make
me afraid, or instill fear in me.
Also, the one time I cut my hand in the kitchen and needed a doctor,
I went to the emergency room immediately with no problem. Maybe for
governors it was different.
...The money wasn't great lol, and I really grew to dislike
zucchini...overall though, it was a positive experience for me.
