The Last Snowflake

Lieutenant Commander Brook DeWalt sends this note about The Last Snowflake:

In his six years in the Pentagon, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld was infamous for his "snowflakes" -- memos that flew from his fingers giving various staff members and sections sometimes short-notice and short-suspense tasks. Today he sent out a final snowflake, thanking the men and women of the Pentagon for their long hours and multitude of missions. And he granted amnesty for all outstanding snowflakes.

Best of luck you, Mr. Secretary (and write the damn book!).

Update:  Here's our recollection of Donald Rumsfeld that we posted a month ago ("Rummy in Action - Memorial/Celebration in Photos").  I think the first one is the best.
