Columbo Asks A Few Questions
Ah, sorry to bother you Mr. Obama, Sir. . ...
Excuse me Mr. Obama, I mean President Obama, sir. Um . . I know you're busy, and important and stuff. I mean, running the country is very important and -- ah -- I hate to bother you, sir. I will only take a minute. Okay, sir?
See, I have these missing pieces that are holding me up, and I was wondering, sir, if you could take time out of your busy schedule and help me out. You know, no big deal, just some loose ends and things.
Hey, you have a nice place here! The wife sees houses like this on TV all the time and says, boy, she wishes she had digs like this, you know? Is that painting real? Really? Wow! I saw something like that in a museum once.
Oh, sorry sir. I didn't mean to get off the track.
So if you could just help me out a minute and give me some details, I will get right out of your way. I want to close this case and maybe take the wife to Coney Island or something. Ever been to Coney Island, sir? No? I didn't think so...
Well, listen, anyway, I can't seem to get some information I need to wrap this up. These things seem to either be "not released" or "not available." I'm sure it's just an oversight or glitch or something, so if you could you tell me where these things are? I have them written down here somewhere -- oh wait. I'll just read it to you.
Could you please help me find these things, sir?

Oh, and one more thing, Mr. President, I can't seem to find any articles you published as editor of the Harvard Law Review, or as a professor at the University of Chicago. Can you explain that to me, sir?
Oh, but hey -- listen! I know you're busy! If this is too much for you right now -- I mean -- tell you what. I'll come back tomorrow. Give you some time to get these things together, you know? I mean, I know you're busy. I'll just let myself out. I'll be back tomorrow. And the day after. . ...
What's that Mr. President? Who wants to know these things?
