The saga of the United States Justice Department attempting to lay their hands on Edward Snowden continues. I’m reminded of a popular book and play.
They seek him here, they seek him there,
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere.
Is he in heaven? — Is he in hell?
That damned, elusive Pimpernel!
In a separate song from the musical, the partial lyrics;
We all are caught in the middle
of one long treacherous riddle.
Can I trust you?
Should you trust me too?…
We shamble on through this hell
taking on more secrets to sell
’til there comes a day
when we sell our souls away.
Meanwhile President Obama unveiled the most ambitious plan to counter climate change; announced he was imposing the first-ever limits on carbon emissions from power plants, the single largest source of pollution in the US. It’s interesting to see how much more damage to the economy this President can impose before he leaves office.
