THE EMAIL BUG
News Item: Hillary Clinton has destroyed 32,000 out of 60,000 e-mails sent during
her tenure as Secretary of State. She herself judged them to be personal.
Who are you?
Oh, I am an e-mail bug. Me and my relatives and friends run up and down the wires
carrying the dots and dashes of your messages.
No wonder you look so fit. But why so gloomy?
Mass murder! What do you mean?
I mean mass murder. An Holocaust. All my little friends and relatives – millions of
them – waiting for Hillary to press the 'send' key.
So what happened?
She hit the self-destruct – what you call 'discard'.
But don't people do that every day?
Yes, they do. It's like humans having a death in the family... it's part of life. But it is
really different when one human destroys, I mean, discards 32,000 all at once...
holocaust. We are all in shock.
I am truly sorry...
I suppose it is some consolation for a human to say that and I thank you. But so many
to die because she wants to hide things... for us it is emblazoned in memory.
Did Hillary ever apologize?
No. I guess someone will have to put a bug in her ear...
I see you have not lost your sense of humor... one can only admire your courage in
the wake of such loss...
