‘Now then, I suppose you are all thinking "Why, oh why, is my life plagued with Doctor Obolensky, that horrible villain and stylish man about town?” Well, the answer is rather simple. You lead boring, ordinary lives. And yet, you lack the drive, the vision, and the ability, to crush your neighbors with giant mechanical lobsters. So of course, someone has to do it for you, or you'd all end up with nothing to talk about.’ - Doctor Obolensky, Villains!

‘I was pondering on the nature of what a "weapon" actually is and really, the conclusion that I came to was that, at base, it is in fact a communications device.

An unknown wit defined diplomacy as “The business of handling a porcupine without disturbing the quills.” It stands to reason that the job requires great skill. If one peeks into a diplomat’s briefcase, one might discover some unusual items: a jar of oil to pour on trouble waters, a hammer to pound sense, a rudder to maintain course, along with a cloak of patience, understanding and tact folded neatly on top.
Ah yes, the art of diplomacy. Baron Klaus Wulfenbach Outlander and Frau Lowey, both knowledgeable and talented in this field, will be our speakers this month. Please join us on Sunday, January 16 at 2 pm slt for an insightful presentation and discussion on diplomacy.
