Is that me in my favourite bit of The Onion?

A while back I wrote about the Dept. Head Rawlings series of hi-tech super-spy thriller "op-eds" on The Onion.

I suspect the anonymous author of the series may have read that blog post, as when I wasn't looking, Rawlings returned to the Onion, with a new problem, and a new member on his team at the Department for Special Acquisitions and Liquidations...
Which is why Mr. Bisson is here. Some of you know Mr. Bisson, and I'm sorry you have to see him again. His specialty has become less common since the heady 1970s, but his services are still quite useful to us.

Bisson, you have your assignment. I have faith in your, shall I say, unorthodox skills and experience.
While some readers may see this as explaining my tendency to suddenly vanish on unexplained foreign trips, I'm afraid I'm going to be sticking to my cover story still just a technology journalist and not, as Rawlings says, "the world's most seductive catamite assassin".

At least the problem with the Thanatos device seems to have been solved.
