Taking The Power Seat  

June 9, 2014
The tragic killings of two Las Vegas officers having lunch at a pizza place on Sunday morning brought me chills. It was reality check time for me. I realized that any officer is vulnerable to attack, at any time, at any place, doing any part of his or her job. Even on a "break," we know there are no breaks, no down time when we're on duty, in uniform.

Just What the Hell Are We Protecting?  

April 14, 2014
I do wonder to what extent the federal employees among our ranks ask themselves whether or not these people are worth protecting and their laws worth enforcing? Just where are the conscientious objectors within the federal fold? Are its ranks really filled with men who are content to be given their marching orders and sent out to wreck havoc? And do they really think that all this won't some day come back to bite them in the ass?

The Law is An Ass (At Least When it Comes to Photographing One)  

March 17, 2014
Making my way to the urinal, I was passed by a man who'd stepped out the adjacent stall in a hurry. As he did, I noted the presence of crumpled tissue paper on the floor about the toilet. The man's presence in the stall had not been diet-related. Normally, this would not have been something I'd have felt compelled to concern myself with. Different strokes for different folks.
