Dear Leader was about 30 feet from my desk!


Sorry for the crappy cameraphone pictures.  I actually have about 25 good ones, but no cable to xfer them until I get home.  I had to show ID twice this morning to get into the office, and be wanded.

When my wife went to Alabama by cam (2.00 / 0) #1 Thu Jan 25, 2007 at 07:16:35 AM EST
she couldn't get into her hotel through the front door as Condaleeza Rice and Jack Straw had monopolised it. What a horrible cloistered life he must lead. I guess if you want the power, you have to accept it.

HW had to have somebody explain what these fancy laser scanner things in the grocery stores were about. It'd been that long since he'd been allowed out in public.

You work at an airport? by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #2 Thu Jan 25, 2007 at 07:21:10 AM EST
It must suck to remove your shoes and belt to get into work.


The ad agency by barooo (2.00 / 0) #4 Thu Jan 25, 2007 at 07:25:27 AM EST
I work for has office space in an unused terminal of the semi-abandoned KCMO downtown airport.  It's only used for private planes, and the part that we work in isn't secured, other than a sign saying no guns or knives in the building.

I work at Dulles by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #5 Thu Jan 25, 2007 at 07:36:49 AM EST
In a building outside security. The employee parking lot is walking distance to the terminal, so I get free parking when I travel.

I co-oped at the AC Airport by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #6 Thu Jan 25, 2007 at 07:41:09 AM EST
Just a wave of my badge, and I could go nearly anywhere. It was best to use the radio and call the control tower if I had to cross a runway, and the Air Guard section was quite perturbed by my Swords into Plowshares bumper sticker.

I'll wave next tiem I go through Dulles.

When I flew out to visit Dad by wiredog (4.00 / 1) #19 Thu Jan 25, 2007 at 10:45:06 AM EST
I parked in the employee lot right across the street from the garage. About a 1 minute walk to the shuttle bus.

I don't know about worthless. by Christopher Robin was Murdered (4.00 / 2) #13 Thu Jan 25, 2007 at 09:40:27 AM EST
He's just in a position that demands way more than his slim abilities can handle. But, in some other position, say, elementary school gym teacher, I bet he'd really shine.

What about rodeo clown? If he's good at it, then it is something to keep him busy. If it turns out he isn't so good at it, well, then we don't have to worry to much about his future. I think that's win/win.

They have to (1) think fast and (2) their primary job is to protect someone else (the cowboy).

Failure on (1), spectacular failure on (2).

Then again, your 2d point is very well taken.

I don't know by theboz (2.00 / 0) #18 Thu Jan 25, 2007 at 10:42:10 AM EST
The guy is a former cheerleader, not an athlete. Most of the gym teachers I had were at least interested in sports, not dressing fancy and prancing around.

He was a high school athlete. by Christopher Robin was Murdered (2.00 / 0) #30 Sat Jan 27, 2007 at 10:39:24 AM EST
He played Little League baseball before focusing on football in junior high. He was QB on his junior high team.

In Andover, he played varsity basketball and baseball, though he was not a star player. He did quit sports his senior year. He became a cheerleader instead of a player, though this was so he could focus his time and energy on his garage band, the Torqueys (weirdly, he wasn't a singer or instrument player - he was "the clapper" in the band). Unlike Kerry's garage band, I don't believe they ever recorded a single.

During this time, Bush also organized the previously haphazard Andover stickball league - becoming Andover's first "High Commissioner of Stickball." A classmate remembers him stopping a stickball game and leading everybody in applause for a bookish, academically-disinclined student who, to everybody's surprise, caught a pop fly. Tell me that's not gym teacher behavior.

During his "nomadic years," he mentored African-American kids in the PULL program in Texas. That program included many sports outings. Youngsters in the program remember Bush playing basketball and teaching wrestling. He also, interestingly, told youngsters not to run when they saw a police cruiser because cops in Texas would unfairly assume the kids had done something illegal and run them down.

I'm telling you - Bush is considerably more qualified to be a gym teacher than he is to be president. In some alternate universe, some better alternate universe, there's a group of kids who absolutely adore their wonderful gym teacher Coach Bush.

Perhaps so by theboz (2.00 / 0) #31 Sat Jan 27, 2007 at 04:53:22 PM EST
Perhaps he is more qualified to be a gym teacher than president. Somehow though, I can just imagine he would manage to fuck it up badly.
