Baltimore Drive-by, Part XVI: How Green Was My Valium?

Meanwhile, back in the newsroom ...

Honorée dimmed the lights in her office and removed her shoes. She lowered herself onto the floor and into the lotus position, popping a Valium along the way.

"I accept," she said, moving her hands into the dhyana, or thumbs-up, mudra.

"I accept my $300,000 salary even as others lose their jobs and their pay."

"I accept that I have gained while others have lost."

"I accept that I serve my boss; that he thinks, and that through me he speaks."

"I accept."
(Read all of "The Baltimore Drive-by" so far here. And remember: This is fiction. It never happened and never will.)
