Our president found himself the subject of a whistleblower at the October 2nd meeting of Fort Leavenworth #154. Actually, everyone in attendance were whistleblowers thanks to an anonymous donation of 120 of the famous wood train whistles on sale at the Pullman Place Family Restuarant. “The noise was worse than a parade of kids with kazoos”, said one of the regulars at Pullman’s. “You should all be in the Shrine Oriental Band”, said a member of the Adballah Shriners divan, who wished to remain anonymous. “Yeah, said a Sojourner, “they are just a kazoo band for adults, so same difference.”
Bro. Arnold gave a rousing pitch for High Twelve and the Shawnee High Twelve charity called The Wolcott Foundation. The Foundation awards fellowships for graduate students seeking higher education in government-related studies. Since most of the attendees have had enough government for a lifetime, no one picked up an application.
