"Lawyers, Guns, and Money"
I'm listening to "Genius: The Best of Warren Zevon" while catching up on my 'net surfing. (We got a live one over at the latest post on BlameBush! that we're toying with...)
Anyway, "Lawyers, Guns, and Money" comes up, and I started thinking of my time as Iraq Coalition Finance Officer at CENTCOM last year. That was kind of my theme song there; I'd be calling everyone, working these "drug deals" to try to get the coalition troops fed, moved, and housed with promise of payment later, and my co-workers would mention how they expected to see me doing an Ollie North in front of Congress one day.
Since I can't really say anything specific about what I did there, I'll just say that Warren Zevon was way ahead of his time:
"Send lawyers, guns and money,
The shit has hit the fan"
