"You spelled 'committee' wrong." Drane pauses for dramatic effect. "Oh, lighten up, Ambassador. I will say it is refreshing to have coherent definitions in a resolution of this scope. If I wanted to be picky, I would ask that the words 'defined as' be added to clauses 1 and 2, as that...

"I'm not sure I can support this if its scope is so broad. What if we are dealing with dangerous goods? Or sophisticated weapons? Perhaps Nation A doesn't want Nation B's engineers tinkering with the thermo-nukular devices that they have stationed there."

Drane enters the chamber. “I want so badly to vote for this, but when I see indeterminate language like ‘every couple of years’ in a legal proposal, it makes me choke on my gator jerky. International law is no place for inexact numbers like ‘a couple’. If you mean two years, say two years, not a cou...

After an all-night preparatory session, Ambassador Drane enters the debate hall. His eyes, though bloodshot, are wide open, his gait sprightly and his demeanor outwardly enthusiastic; no doubt the consumption of several quarts of southern style sweet tea have offset some of the effects of a sleeples...

The German lifts up the laptop and shows its bottom to Drane. “Felt. It is made for sensitive surfaces.” He gently places it back down. He runs his hand along Number 53’s fender and pushes a hidden button. A small port on the hood pops open. He plugs the laptop into the port and types on commands. ...

Two men, both dressed in denim coveralls, enter the bar. One, a tanned, mustachioed man, is carrying a large toolbox; the other, a pale, graying man, is carrying a laptop computer.
