The President's "vacation"
You're the President of the United States & you're on "vacation." You're sitting at a kitchen table in Hawaii sipping freshly squeezed orange juice, checking out last night's NBA highlights on your tablet, & thinking that the only ciggie you really miss is the first one in the morning. An aide comes in & informs you the national security briefing is in ten minutes, unfortunately it's going to run a bit long, so you'll receive a revised daily schedule afterward. You go back to your orange juice & sports. Your daughters come in to give you a good morning hug. Before the door swings shut you catch a glimpse in the next room of a military attache in a spiffy uniform handcuffed to a briefcase.
