The #FBI remembers Special Agent Paul Andrew LeVeille, who died #OTD in 1999 while participating in a Bureau-sponsored mountain pilot training course in Colorado. He was a licensed FBI pilot. #WallOfHonor https://t.co/EZlWyAJZmr pic.twitter.com/K3yvt9ybsF

This a tragic loss for the family and friends and loved ones of Agent LeVille but sounds a sad note as I realize you can no longer say that “a nation mourns.”
Today, thanks to the endemic chancred corruption in the FBI, a very large segment of the thinking American public just notes this tragedy with a shrug and thinks of the bureau with coruscating scorn.
Once upon a time the FBI, the “G-Men,” were fabled in story, radio, TV, magazines, and movies as dashing agents combating crime and gangsters from sea to shining sea.
Now all that mythic power has in a few short years been reduced to sodden ashes. Now the FBI stands revealed as just another shabby collection of grifters and climbers in the minds of Americans that once admired them.
Godspeed Paul LeVeille. Not so the FBI.
Too bad. Once upon a time they had some good American values, had some. . . well, nice ideals.
Have to get back, have to get back the base
I need to talk to somebody I can trust
Too many cooks are tryin’ to spoil the broth
I can’t feel it in my throat, that’s all she wrote
I’m not feeling it no more
Not feeling it anymore
Not feelin’ it no more
Not feelin’ it anymore
