The Perils of the Job


We grew up with James Bond, Jason Bourne and a host of other shows and movies that have made spying seem like the most thrilling job you could get. Car chases, gunfights, juicy national secrets. These days you hear the news that the US may have been tapping Angela Merkel’s phone, and as you picture some weary spook settling down for another 7 hours of German financial discourse, you start to feel that maybe your job is exciting enough after all.

I like to imagine that when Ms Merkel called Obama to ask about the spying she would have been distracted by the constant echo on the line, as the phone tapping machine beside Obama’s desk reported the conversation just a split second later.


  1. Thanks. Dan. The T shirt arrived yesterday. I think it’s appropriate that I wear it to church tomorrow!
