"Ai, ai . . . ai, ai . . . have you ever danced in the tropics,
In that lazy, hazy, like
Kind of crazy, like
South American way?
"Ai, ai . . . ai, ai . . . have you ever kissed in the moonlight,
in the grand and glorious,
South American way?"
*Those really are the words to the song.

Oh, those wild and crazy Secret Service agents. It's bad enough that they patronized ladies of the evening while they were on the presidential security detail to Colombia.
Gives a whole new meaning to the term "secret service," doesn't it?
But it's even worse that one of them allegedly promised a lovely young señorita named "Dania (last name unknown)" that he'd pay her $800 USD . . . but then, after she'd acted in reasonable reliance on his promise to her detriment, told her he was drunk when he promised her the $800 and offered her $30 instead.
The stupidity of THAT, my friends (if true), is astounding. And as we all know, the dispute about sums due and owing caused a row in the hotel lobby, which caused law enforcement authorities to be summoned, and next thing you know we have 11 Secret Service guys being placed out of service. One has already "retired," and one has been fired (and reportedly plans to sue). Another chose to resign. The other eight are still being investigated.
