Evidence of the Presidents

I will continue to believe in the existence of the President of the USA, because even though I have not seen him, I believe I have seen evidence. Today, driving between Garran and Civic we saw lots of police people standing along the road, and a police car parked in the middle of the road. Many other cars were waiting with the engines turned off, but no one was tooting or making rude gestures.  Surely this is evidence of the President's existence. No one else could cause delays without causing ill feeling as well. Surely.

Also, there were many noisy planes flying above the Parliamentary Regions. And they did claim that it was to prevent air strikes.

No public servants were allowed into Parliament House today.  I didn't see that with my own eyes, though, so I'm not sure if I can use it as evidence for my belief.  I was advised by email. I didn't mind, I had no ill feeling.  Like most other days of my life I didn't have any need to go to Parliament House.

Ah well.

St Paul defined faith as belief in things not seen. You are doing well on that score.

There was an online article about a booklet containing the entire security plan for the existing president for his time in Australia found in a Melbourne gutter. There must be something deeply symbolic in this, and it would be even more symbolic if we knew who dropped it, ie one of theirs or one of yours (we don't).

To some extent the president is a symbol and if he did not exist someone would have to invent him. Actually they did.

Melbournians don't like to keep anything private, apparently.
