John Beckwith: Secretary Cleary, John Ryan.
Secretary Cleary: Hi, John.
John Beckwith: I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your position paper on economic expansion in Micronesia.
Secretary Cleary: You've read my position paper?
John Beckwith: I read it while I was sailing my boat to Bermuda.
Secretary Cleary: A sailor? Good man! Take a seat.
John Beckwith: Oh, thanks.
Secretary Cleary: You didn't happen to catch my speech on the Paraguayan debt and money supply issue did you?
John Beckwith: Are you kidding me? I thought it was great! Your argument for the inverse ratio of capitalization to debt was genius. Now if we could just get Congress not to be so shortsighted.
Secretary Cleary: Yes! Well put. Shortsighted. John, what do you say we head onto the deck and light up a couple of cigars?
John Beckwith: Stogies?
Secretary Cleary: Yeah.
John Beckwith: Why not?
After dancing with his wife John sees Secretary Cleary sitting alone. He walks over and introduces himself.
