Politician’s protection

Hirohito suggests a lead-plated Bible in my breast pocket. It makes good press with a tinge of holiness when a bullet is arrested mid-epistle, or even more excitingly, as deep as Revelations. Oh, and plus I’d live to tell, unless the protection of a thousand thin pages is mere urban legend. Hirohito, endearingly, tends to value a good story more than the realities of physics–but even if his conviction is worth its salt, I’m the kind of guy who’d be shot from behind.
