Even in such instances do I enjoy the highs, lows, and unknowables of the job. It's a bit like manning a joystick at Cape Canaveral: lovely equipment, men on task, and always the promise that things which go awry are capable of going so awry that the course of a federal program is altered forever.
How poetic. It reminds me of the expression "he got rich doing things which make unregulated industries regulated". I wish I had such a way with the pen. Or a bar.
