|CHAPTER 21 All right.
2 We apologize.
3 We're well aware that this is America,
4 aWhere nobody is anybody's servant,
5 Least of all the people who work for the government,
6 Because you're the ones who take care of all the important things,
7 bNamely, the things nobody else wants to be responsible for,
8 Which is a lot of things,
9 And probably explains why you're so cross and grumpy,
10 All the time.
CHAPTER 31 But have you figured out that just because nobody else wants to be responsible doesn't mean that you have to be?
3 Well, we know you're busy,
4 Provided you've gotten into the office already,
5 And so we're just going to go right ahead,
6 And pretend you're paying attention to us,
7 Just like you pretend to pay attention to the public.
8 How does that sound?
10 Okay, then.
11 Where were we?
CHAPTER 41 Oh yes.
2 We were talking about responsibility.
3 Ugh. It's a dirty word, isn't it?
4 The thing is, it's your job to handle all the messy unpleasant stuff nobody else wants to think about,
||5 But it doesn't have to be as awful as it sounds,
6 cBecause if nobody else is thinking about these things,
7 Then how on earth are they going to know if you don't think about them either,
8 And just do whatever you feel like doing instead?
9 They aren't.
10 That's why the dWay of Harry is so perfect for the Hallites.
CHAPTER 51 eIt was Harry who pointed out that none of this is going anywhere anyway,
2 fWhich is why it wouldn't help to think about it even if we wanted to,
3 Which we mostly don't,
4 As I think we can all agree.
5 gThat's also why Harry gave us his Trinity,
6 hConsisting of Desire, Certainty, and Blame,
7 Which help all us Harriers get through daily life,
8 Without thinking about anything at all.
CHAPTER 61 Now, if you work for the government, Harry's Trinity is especially important,
2 Because when people idesire something,
3 They want the government to give it to them.
4 When they are jcertain about something,
5 They want the government to turn their certainty into the law of the land.
