Retief of the CDT on-line
Retief is a character invented by Keith Laumer. He's a junior diplomat of the Corps Diplomatique Terrestriene, which is based on the US Foreign Service. Laumer spent some time in the US foreign service in Burma, and his portrayal of the CDT is both funny and unflattering. Now, Addison over at Xrlq informs me that Baen books has Retief on-line. If you've never read a Retief story, do yourself a favor and visit.
