...and the Annals of Addled Analysts Applying As Assistants

I have recently thought about taking on an assistant. There are many mysteries around me these days, and George and Bess are pretty busy.

You know who I wouldn't ever, ever hire, though?

Paul Begala, he of this penetrating quote:

“If you go to a white neighborhood in the suburbs and ask them, ‘How would you feel about a large black man kicking your door in,’ they would say, ‘That doesn’t sound good to me,’” said Democratic political consultant Paul Begala. “But if you say, 'Your house is on fire, and the firefighter happens to be black,' it’s a different situation.”

The last thing I need when I'm in hot pursuit of some hoodlums who tried to run me off the road is an assistant shouting via walkie-talkie "The suspect is hatless! Repeat, hatless!"
