A wolf in sheep’s clothing

Dear Editor,

Consider this: what if, instead of the somewhat weak attempt at humor it appeared to be, the soccer ball that Vladimir Putin tossed to Donald Trump at Monday’s press conference in Helsinki was actually a message? A secret message between the two, much like the secret 2-1/2 hour meeting that preceded the news conference. And what if the message was from Putin to Trump and was actually something like this: “You have your orders. You know what I want. Go and get it done, and don’t disappoint me. THE BALL IS IN YOUR COURT”.
