  •  Fiddlers on the Roof (15+ / 0-)

    My young daughter and I attended an Obama open-air rally in August.  During the wait, we noticed military-type guys in the distance carrying large hard cases, perhaps with weapons in them.  I told my daughter they reminded me of old gangster movies where they'd carry their guns in violin cases.  

    A few minutes later, we saw them on the roofs of nearby buildings.  My daughter, a fan of "Fiddler on the Roof,"  said they were like fiddlers on the roof--seeing everything.

      ...the news coverage of the assassination attempt on Reagan. Several members of his security detail were holding what appeared to be Uzis, and there were several open briefcases visible on the sidewalk.  So, I'm guessing that if you see a Secret Service agent carrying a briefcase, it probably doesn't contain his lunch.
