for days now, i've been trying to remember a quotation, which i vaguely seem
to remember popping up in trn/nn or some USENET newsreader of old, along

or something like that.
ring a bell for anyone?

- Lester Pearson in 1967, during a meeting between himself and
President Lyndon Johnson, whose Secret Service detail had taken over
Pearson's cottage retreat. At one point, a Johnson guard asked
Pearson, "Who are you and where are you going?"
