Jeffrey LewisACW Happy Hour, Thursday, October 8, 6ish

As many of you know, my lovely wife Jill is taking a government job so she can be read in to intelligence compartments that I can’t even dream about.

From now on, at dinner, Jill will just sit quietly, thinking “What a supercilious fool I’ve married.”

Come to think of it, it won’t change our relationship much at all.

Anyway, you know the drill!

Come join us to celebrate at the world renowned The Big Hunt, Thursday, October 8, around 6:00 pm or so.

The Big Hunt is located south of Dupont Circle at 1345 Connecticut Ave.

We’ll congregate upstairs, around the pool table.

    Those of us already read into the programs already know you’re a supercilious fool 🙂 But we apperciate the occasional good laugh 🙂

    Congrats to Jill, sorry to miss the happy hour, and greetings from your old haunts in Cambridge! At the risk of coming off as supercilious, in the posited scenario, wouldn’t Jill be the supercilious one, i.e. disdainful of your lack of SCIF-worthy knowledge? As for either of you sitting quietly, well, that doesn’t strike me as very plausible either…:)

    “As many of you know, my lovely wife Jill is taking a government job so she can be read in to intelligence compartments that I can’t even dream about.”

    I’m from the old school where such clearances were considered a serious “responsibility” rather than a name badge to be worn at social gatherings. Can you imagine, during our security briefings they would actually tell us not to flaunt our clearances around in or outside of the work area – let alone broadcasting it on the internet?

    Well, times have changed. Now Vice Presidents and their staffers can publicly “out” covert CIA operatives to the media.

    Yes, it’s DC’s social status & topic for morons like you.
    The times have changed. Especially when the CIA employee does it to themselves by first by going to various” in-the-business sites”, social gatherings, etc. telling others they are a NOC. But, by your opinion Sandy Berger was just acting in defense of his nation.

    …and we walked 2 miles to briefings, uphill, in a perpetual snowstorm.

    Now get off my lawn, you damn kids!
