  •  Granted. I guess I should change the wording. I (10+ / 0-)

    was thinking of the whole intelligence system, including Dick Cheney, in its relationship to our Constitution. This may require more concentration than easily mustered easily this late in the evening.

    BTW I substantially improved the writing since your first read with complete words, parallel structure, no extra spacing, and the kinds of things you professional writers like to show off with. Also, added the account of the Dick Cheney speech, if you have time for a second glance.

    Thanks for the recommendation.

    What a sad episode in American history. I hope we can repair the damage to our country and institutions before it is too late.

        the "c" in constitution but I like pretending to be melodramatic with MB so he knows I care about standards. Often this late, I can get 10 recs if I'm lucky so I've been trying to cut back on excess quality. (snark alert!)

        Plus, MBs been doing some pretty wild and sly straight face snarking in some of my other posts so I figure I better learn how to serve it back or he might think I'm a patsy.

        Seeing how he's recommend something like 5 of my last 8 posts, though he can say pretty much whatever he likes. He now has the HoundDog VIP Golden WorldPass. The rest of you can get one too. You just have to become a follower and give me a total of 10 recs and comments and you can then do whatever you like in any of my posts forever. *

          as well.

          Dang, this is sort of awkward.  I was sort of working myself into a mood to go on strike. Something I like to do every now and then for my own amusement. I don't ever mention it to anyone, but I makes me feel young and edgy.

          But, seeing how you, Mark, MB and a lot of other folks are being so friendly, it would seem sort of ungracious and uncalled for on my part.

          So now I'm sort of in a pickle.

          I'll have to think about this in the morning.

          Cheers and thanks again.
