Sunday Reindeer Game

OK, today’s word:

obstreperous

For today’s example, I was planning on doing something Ashcroft-related — when the WOD is “surreptitious,” how can one not leap to using the name of the guy in charge of the Injustice Department? But then Dictonary.com beat me to it, so today, I will defer to the authority:

“The monitoring is not surreptitious; on the contrary, the defendant and his or her attorney are required to be given notice of the government’s listening activities.” –John Ashcroft, “National Security; Prevention of Acts of Violence and Terrorism,” Federal Register 66, no. 211, October 26, 2001

The actions — surreptitious and overt — of the Bush administration give me chills…

Okay, your turn!
