SECDEF visits Operation Thank You
I won’t give away the story but, as Scott notes in his e-mail, “His name rhymes with ‘Ronald Mumsfeld.'”
WITHOUT WARNING, a black SUV rounded the corner from Orange Ave. on to 4th St., slowing almost to a stop in front of our position. The rear window came down, and an elderly gentleman with gray hair, glasses, and a mischievious grin stuck his head out the window, smiled, and waved.
“Thank you!” he said to the startled group of Protest Warriors, before driving off towards San Diego.
A moment of stunned silence passed.
Ã¢€œThat was AWESOME!Ã¢€
It was Donald Rumsfeld, in the flesh.
Of course, calling him “elderly” is no way to encourage a return visit. The man’s got more energy than most 21-year-olds.
