Well, don’t ya know. Raw milk is drunk all over D.C.–even though it is illegal. The embassies especially hoard it. I suspect the White House, too. If we can get Kimberly Hartke to place a mole there, we could find out for sure.I know the White House chef cooks with bacon. lard, cream and butter– even those dangerous oysters and all the other good stuff. That is one of the reasons why Bush was real healthy and in such good shape.
Ya see, raw milk is real good for the kings, queens. presidents and ambassadors of the world, but it is real bad for usins. And we have to realize there are all kinds of drinkers at Departments of Health and Departments of Agriculture, and that includes raw milk.
I know for a fact, that the main milk supplier was right across the street from the White House. It was (is) called Embassy Dairy. They were even hauled into court back in 1954 for illegal transport into D.C. I have one of their steel milk cans [$2, garage sale). I Googled it on the Map back in 2004, and it was there, still in business across from the White House, underground, of course, like so many of Washingtons other underground facilities. It was at the very point of one of those weird symbols you can see from an airplane or a map that L’Enfant had designed. But, when I googled it in 2006, it was no longer there–vanished.
According to the papers, it had just closed down right before I googled it to show our Washington Connections, the real people that teach the nutritional value of raw milk, who are underground in a different sense. I thought bankruptcy was the reason. After all, they deal with the richest people on the planet. Makes perfect sense. Just bought out by a competitor the records said sent to me by an assistant of a Washington correspondent in 2007.
You know I am telling you the truth because you can’t make this kinda stuff up.
Well now, here’s the whipped cream on top of the sundae. Yet another one of the Journal’s correspondents I spoke with face-to-face just the other day– because I was so troubled from the puzzle of these matters. This correspondent had ties with not only the CIA, but worked in the Pentagon and advised the Joint Chiefs of Staff on top secret matters, back when the Embassy Dairy, across from the White House, was hauled into court for illegal transport of the white stuff back in 1952.
Perhaps I should not risk revealing the crown jewel, the creme de la creme, of our private face-to-face– for fear of retribution from the dark side, or maybe some readers.
But, I can’t resist. Our special correspondent had told me the Embassy Dairy no longer appears on the Google map since 2004 because it was highly probable that Homeland Security needed to cover it up. Apparently, being underground was not covered up enough and wasn’t safe and secure enough. Also, the CIA must have had some pretty good intelligence. After all, raw camel milk in one of those friendly Muslim countries had just been made illegal by their health department sometime after the Google location vanished, but only at the roadside stands that had offered the raw milk straight from camels to passersby for centuries.
Ahh, I said to the informant, it’s the Patriot Act again.
Then, we chuckled, almost to tears.
So I was much relieved from all my troubles about all this, not only being able to tell someone about it after all these years, but also in having what could be an answer to this mystery.
But I am still waiting for a candied cherry, to finish it off.
What will it be next–vegetable stands or oyster bars?
