Sam "Chang" Alito, Jr. has accepted my invitation to replace A3G and join my weekly Klingon scrabble group! To those of you who may smirk I say Sujatlh 'e' yImev
. To all others, I will share that in spite of the rough year with Star Trek being cancelled, the passing of James "Scotty" Doohan (known to legions of Trekkers and Trekkies alike as Montgomery Scott, the man who kept the laws of physics from biting Captain Kirk right in his overacting, scenery-chewing tuckus every week) and finally with Sulu announcing that he was not solo all these years, we remain faithful.
I have to confess that I was kind of irritated at Sulu's timing. I mean, Harriet withdraws, I indict 'Scooter' Libby and then he resigns - then comes along George Takei, pushing those stories and me right off the front page, not to mention he violated the Federation's official 'Don't ask don't tell' policy...
I am sharing this personal information at the risk of a public ribbing since it has come to my attention that Bob Woodward is preparing a hit piece on our group attempting to undermine my investigation. He is just being spiteful since he and Judy Miller wanted to join, but Harriet Miers said
"naDevvo' peghoS Hab SoSlI' Quch!
" - go away, your mothers have smooth foreheads!
If you must know, our monthly group is comprised of Harriet, Condi Rice, Anna Marie Cox
, Madeleine Albright and yours truly. We have a round robin tournament the third Friday of each month with cool Star Trek prizes for the winner. It is all good clean fun with everyone always trying to beat Condi. Last month, true to form, she got the best of us again! It is hard to compete with a razor sharp mind like hers when she pulls words like yuQjIjDIvI' out of her hat, but we keep trying!
[If only the War in Iraq and other global conflicts could be decided over a game of Klingon Scrabble we would be in capable hands and sleep better at night]
