Missing Person Report

I saw Dick on the Noon News today. He was carrying his knapsack out of the hospital and grinning all the way to the back of his shiny driven car.

What in the heck does he carry in that thing? Fresh pants in case he wets himself? He wasn't driving so he didn't even have to carry his keys and the hospital surely has gowns and towels he could use, I think they would also supply basics like toilet paper and a toothbrush if he needed it.

How many people go to the hospital for a checkup anyway? Hospital. Not clinic or even medical complex. Suppose that every cardiac patient had every "routine" check up at the hospital, would there be room for anybody else?

I still haven't seen Karl Rove. I'm not the only one who hasn't seen him. I'm pretty sure he wasn't in Dick Cheney's knapsack, but he might be in Jim Baker's .

He could be cruising some Texas backroads in a '57 Chevy Thunderbird with Osama Bin Laden, the George Jones blaring a little too loud, the ripple a little too warm as they argue about whick animals are the most fun to run over and whether it's the chocotate or the peanut butter that made Reese's so popular.

I don't know, and I don't understand why there isn't a single reporter in the White House press corps hasn't thought to ask why he disappeared after his lawyer admitted that he was one of Matt Cooper's sources in the outing of former covert CIA operative, Valerie plame.

Maybe the White House press corps is preoccupied with questions of their own. Why does Dick have all his "routine" check ups at the hospital; what does he carry in his knapsack; is it the chocolate or the peanut butter? Are kittens really more fun to run over than armadillos?
