Open Note To Dictators

Hey, we all know how tempting power is. You're sitting on top of the world, people telling you how wonderful you are every time you turn around. You start thinking maybe they're right.

And that maybe you shouldn't hide your light under a bushel. Maybe you should share your beatific visage with everyone, as a symbol of national pride.


Here's the end result and problem with that road, Chief; now you're greeting guests in front of a twenty foot tall torso shot of yourself festooned with antique bling and horse blankets.

Not that its a bad look for you, mind you. You work it somehow. I think its the cheekbones.

But it gives people in other countries the impression that you might be slipping just a wee bit into 'Lunatic Egomaniacal Dictator' territory.

I'm just sayin'.
