Over the years and back when the Secret Service was in the Treasury I was on a number of planning assignments for various POTUS visits in our department's jurisdiction. Some were more intense than others. On one of these details, at the end of the planning process (which was conducted for about 1 week ahead of the visit) and the night before the visit the SS out of town advance team (very serious group of fellas) asked where would be a good place to relax and have a few drinks to wind down. As a spur of the moment prank I suggested a local gay bar without revealing its "characteristics". The local SS guys just smiled but didn't say anything. The out of town team said "thanks". The next day they were............not amused. I got audited that year. Coincidence? Pop used to say "you can shit on the steps of city hall, but they're gonna make you clean it up"..................wise words..............

"Ripples"?
