Reporting In

The months have flown by and it’s time for Bandolero to report in. And that’s what this post is about. Because not only is it time for Bandolero to report in, it is time for Bandolero’s captains and lieutenants to report in, as well. The generals and colonels don’t have to report in, however, because they report in to Bandolero and their reports are passed along by Bandolero when Bandolero reports in. Captains and lieutenants, however, generally are kind of like franchisees in the revolution. They are independent contractors in the cause. They call their own shots in their own time, so long as their actions further the cause of the revolution. Since they aren’t under the direct command and oversight of Bandolero, Bandolero can’t really report in for them, but must send out the call, such as this call, for them to report in. Also, many of them work undercover or as double agents or quadruple agents for the cause, making it impossible for them to report in on a pre-arranged schedule, because the nature of being undercover or working double or quadruple just doesn’t allow for reporting in according to a pre-arranged schedule. They have to take the opportunities when they come and since they’re undecover they’re usually not the ones who control the opportunities.

And there you have it. Until the next report, adios.
