Enjoy the day. Deputies, corrections officers, and clerks continue performing your job.
There! I feel much better now. On to the subject at hand.
Ana is at still another crossroads in her professional life. Rumor has a political heavyweight demanding an answer to Are you going to run or not? We're here to help.
As we see it, she has three, maybe four alternatives.
First, she does nothing, stands pat and let the force of circumstance wash over her and hope it all turns out all right. It won't of course. Outside agencies are circling, allies are defecting, your choices are more limited every day. Deciding not to decide is a bad decision but it is the easiest to do.
She announces right now that she's in the race, takes all the initial heat from the press, plots revenge on her enemies, tells the feds to bug off, and if she can just stay out of jail, she just might win because a lot of our fellow citizens won't even pay attention until after the super bowl, no, after the NBA playoffs, no then there's the Stanley Cup, whaddaya know, football pre-season. Staying out of jail is a big IF. But
She starts quickly and quietly moving all her portable assets offshore as well as liquidating real estate, including (sob) Saraland, and right before the US Marshals pounce, charter a jet with a 5000-mile radius. Can't go commercial because then she'll be on a no-fly list. Here's where you can go. Better brush up on your language skills. Not everybody speaks redneck. Just trying to be helpful.
