The Most Important Government Job

The most important job in the U.S. government now: Secret Service.

And I do not mean the counterfeiting guys. Though I realize they are busy too.

Ha! No kidding.

None.

I'm pretty sure he can talk his way out of (and obviously into) any situation.

Bob Stein said...

That's exactly what I'm hoping, that he'll talk his way out of the paths of the bullets that bear his name. The otherwise is ten ways of scary.

I'm praying to God nothing happens to this man. And I'm not really the praying type...

Bob Stein said...

Agreed on both. I believe no topic is too depressing for me to want to understand better, but this one challenges.

Mona said...

So who is going to be dogging the bullets? The president elect or the soon to be ex president?

Bob Stein said...

That'd be the elected one. When a president is well loved he becomes a target. What is unthinkable to kind people becomes the opposite to the opposite. Man I sure hope this topic still seems excessively gloomy doomy eight years from now.

Mona said...

Hopefully yes.

No one would like a Kennedy repeat performance ever again.

OMG You have my totally all time favorite wallpaper for your blog! I just love it.
Can I get that too somehow?

Visiting from Mona Auntijis blog!
Nice to meetcha!

What a uniquely earnest compliment, hello there irrepressible S. You can download that image and even closer closeups on my map page. Look for the "huge" and the "humongous" closeup links. Heck if you'd like a sample from my scratch & dent pile (that is, a physical paper chart for a physical actual wall — this needs to be spelled out more explicitly every year) you've very nearly charmed me out of one.

Happy Thanksgiving to Bob & Family!

Bob Stein said...

Why thank you, Mona. It's likely our last as one family in one house, which is surreal in its own way but expansive in ways that matter.

Mona said...

Merry Christmas & Hanuka to Bob & family!
