Golf Friday? Golf Sunday? Golf Monday? But Never Golf Today

In one of the 278 email messages/love letters between Jack Abramoff and David Safavian former chief of staff at the General Services Administration, who's accused of lying and other mean nasty and ugly things in connection with the ill-fated trip to play golf in Scotland, we find this gem.

golf Friday? golf Sunday? golf Monday? golf, golf, golf!!"

According to the prosecutors in Safavian's case, "the e-mails demonstrate that Mr. Safavian's relationship with Mr. Abramoff was highly inappropriate."

Not sure what's so inappropriate about a little golf between friends, unless of course they're exchanging woods, cleaning each other's balls, or trading political favors for expensive international golf vacations.
