|'This CBN thing is getting to be a real
pain in the ass.' Donleavy said. 'So is Ollie North and that
whole damn bunch of kooks and weirdoes. We got this
lightbird colonel running around loose, telling two and
three-star generals what to do, and they're getting pissed
off about it. So don't be surprised if we pull his plug.
Starting with this cockeyed deal with the Hoobaka bunch. We
want you to close 'em out, old buddy. Nothing sudden,
nothing dramatic -- we don't want to make waves. Just let it
die from natural causes, okay? Let 'em get on with it, but
from now on, things should start to go wrong.'
