Levers Of Power
Bernie’s sipping coffee, very quiet today. “I know we’ve got to get back to the Astrid case, Chet. But right now I can’t help thinking about National Slim Jim Day and how to make it happen.”
That Bernie! I go over and give him a nice little bump with the side of my head. We love that, me and Bernie, and this time no coffee gets spilled, unlike some other times I remember a bit too late.
“It’s all about politics, big guy. According to the polls, the Democrats are in trouble.” Democats, did he say? Whoa! “Suppose we somehow convinced them to back National Slim Jim Day. Dollars to doughnuts those poll numbers are going to soar.” Doughnuts are in the mix now? And do cats like Slim Jims? This was getting confusing. Are we on our way to Donut Heaven? I move toward the door, just in case. Have to be ready for anything – politics is new to me.
Sunday at 1: Salem Literary Festival. Spence at Cornerstone Books, Salem Mass. Possible look-alike contest (Chet, Iggy, Princess, General Beauregard) with prizes. Possibly.
