Dear Paul,

Dear Paul [Meo, retired senior economist for World Bank, former State Department vice-consul]

On the very first page of John Perkins’ 2004 Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, he dedicates it to

the presidents of two countries, men who had been my clients, whom I respected and thought of as kindred spirits — Jaime Roldos, president of Ecuador, and Omar Torrijos, president of Panama. Both had [in 1982] just died in fiery crashes. Their deaths were not accidental. They were assassinated . .

Now Paul Michael Meo, first-born son of Dominic Junior and oldest brother to Your Intrepid Reporter, does that not imply

that you, too were complicit, during your career,

in that assassination of Omar Torrijos,

Your client, whom You thought of as Kindred Spirit

Enough to quote him to me.

Should the Revolution come, should I not consent to your execution for manifold crimes against the People?

Dear Brother Paul.
