The local news tells us that our city’s police chief has resigned. He mailed in his resignation, effective immediately, five days before he was supposed to return from a ‘lengthy vacation’. Who among us has not considered doing the same, as a vacation comes to its end? Mellowcat has a vacation coming up in a few months – it’s just seven days in duration, so we’ll have to get that resignation letter going asap. I was reminded of the following line in Apocalypse Now:
Captain Richard Colby: Sell the house. Sell the car. Sell the kids. Find someone else. Forget it! I’m never coming back. Forget it!
