Host: Allison Whittier
DATE: December, 27th, 20XX 7:33 AM EST
WHITTIER: Welcome back. We are talking with Colonels David Taylor and Jane Harris of the newly formed United States Enhanced Guard. Colonels, thank you for joining us.
HARRIS: Our pleasure.
TAYLOR: Thank you for having us.
WHITTIER: Let me just say, I’m loving the new uniforms!
HARRIS: People seem to like them.
WHITTIER: Very patriotic.
TAYOR: That was the idea.
WHITTIER: What can you tell us about the Enhanced Guard.
TAYLOR: Well Ms. Whittier, the shape of military technology has changed radically this year.
HARRIS: We are here to make sure that the United States can protect themselves from those who might do us harm.
WHITTIER: Have you received any specialized training?
TAYLOR: Yes, while we both served, it was important to be able to use our new abilities.
HARRIS: It’s a matter of discipline and control. You need both when you’ve been enhanced.
WHITTIER: Charlie Ramirez has no military training but he seems to be able to use his new abilities quite well.
TAYLOR: First, let me just say that we both have nothing but respect for Mister Ramirez.
HARRIS: He’s a true American hero.
TAYLOR: I’d have to say, and this is just me speculating, he was already a disciplined individual.
HARRIS: Which is something we’re all grateful for.
WHITTIER: So someone without control would be dangerous?
HARRIS: Lack of control can be dangerous for anyone, enhanced or otherwise.
WHITTIER: True but an enhanced individual is effectively a weapon.
TAYLOR: A hammer can be used to attack someone or build a house.
WITTIER: Except a hammer can’t fling a car through a skyscraper.
HARRIS: We want your viewers, and all Americans to know that the members of the Enhanced Guard are here to protect you.
TAYLOR: That’s job one.
WHITTIER: What if you are ordered to fight against non-Enhanced troops?
HARRIS: America is not currently in a state of war.
WHITTIER: That’s not what I asked.
(FOUR SECOND PAUSE)
WHITTIER: Do you consider Enhanced soldiers to be the new nuclear deterrent? One of you could lay waste to anything a modern army could throw at you.
TAYLOR: We are not weapons, we’re people. It’s important that everyone understand that.
WHITTIER: Will you be taking part in relief efforts, like Charlie Ramirez and Sir Roger Clarke?
HARRIS: We serve at the pleasure of the President.
WHITTIER: Which means?
TAYLOR: Mister Ramirez and Sir Roger are private citizens and can do as they please. We must follow orders.
WHITTIER: Will the President order you to aid Charlie Ramirez?
TAYOR: Excuse me?
HARRIS: If and when he does, we will both be there on the double with smiles on our faces.
(THREE QUICK BEEPS)
TAYLOR: Excuse us, ma’am.
HARRIS: Duty calls. Thank you for having us.
TAYLOR: Yes, thank you.
WHITTIER: You’re very- And they’re gone. Folks, they can really move THAT fast. We’ll be right back with Tina Tipton tips for a fancy New Years Party on a budget.
