A Rather Textured Picture

I enjoy listening to other people’s nomenclature. On last night’s Charlie Rose the former acting CIA director John McLaughlin used the term “A rather textured picture” when describing a situation that could be interpreted in any number of ways. Such delicate spin! Not like the more descriptive "Clean Skins" to describe fingerprints that are not on record anywhere. That I'll be using in a poem someday.

In looking up the proper spelling of Mr. McLaughlin’s name I came across this delightful article in The Onion. The mention of the NSA is rather interesting considering the article was posted in August of 2004. Enjoy!
