important lesson for today
If you are a super-secret spy, and make a super-secret deal with the CIA that they will give you $ in exchange for your super-secret spying -- don't be under the illusion that you can sue the CIA if it refuses to pay the $ as promised. You can't, because that's the thing about super-secret spy deals: they're too super-secret to talk about in court. So says (pdf) the Supreme Court today. As if you didn't already know one of the basic rules of life, which is don't ever assume that you're the person to whom a deceptive person is being honest.
