Chris: Bravo! Bierce has a special resonance in my chosen field of work:

"CONSUL, n.
In American politics, a person who having failed to secure an office from the people is given one by the Administration on condition that he leave the country."

"DIPLOMACY, n.
The patriotic art of lying for one's country."

"PEACE, n.
In international affairs, a period of cheating between two periods of fighting."

And possibly my favorite, albeit not from the Devil's Dictionary:

"War is God's way of teaching Americans geography."
