Unlike Congressional Super Committees, I have decided to form a super committee of my own that will actually accomplish things – or better put, help ME accomplish the daily adventures that occur here in my cubicated Libraryland. Maybe in life. I need assistance. Super hero assistance. Members are recruited as their skills are required to help me endure the day. To date:
Needing fast response to a problem, I call on Quick Draw McGraw. As a sheriff, he can also lay down the law. His alter ego, El Kabong, can also be counted on for bravery beyond compare. Good intentioned, if somewhat dim, Quick Draw was the first super hero I needed on my first full day back to work after 3 weeks away for surgery.
Next up, I asked Secret Squirrel, “Agent 000”, to join the ranks. Never alone, his loyal sidekick Morocco Mole was also included in the invite. Both gladly accepted, bringing to the table a pair of crime fighting agents adept at “a variety of spy gadgets, including a machine gun cane, a collection of guns kept inside Secret’s trench coat, and a variety of devices concealed in his fedora (which he almost never removes).” A fedora is an essential item in super committee work.

When frustrations mount and expletives fly (well, they fly internally as I’m not much of an outward swearer), the need for a cool, calm, laid back super hero is a must. Today, as such a moment overtook me, I called upon my old friend Huckleberry Hound. Relaxed, sweet and, as all super heroes of my Committee are, well-intentioned. It’s the Southern drawl that soothes my soul. Thanks, Huck.
More friends will join in time. Stay tuned for updates.
