thanks for the comedy and the inspiration. It just hit me.
The nameless one is prez and he's either insane or senile. The intelligentsia is scared sh*tless about what he's going to do next...so scared, in fact, that they can't even gather their wits long enough to make a public presentation about it. They've all gone down the rabbit hole with ... not Alice. I wonder if they literally fear for their lives...maybe that's the secret that no one has admitted to yet...He can't be prosecuted for shooting someone on 5th avenue or a back room of the Nameless Hotel.
