For the second time in a year and a half, a conservatively dressed clean cut young man has come to my door, flashed a badge and inquired about the man next door. The first time, the young guy said he was from the FBI. The other day, the guy said he was from some Air Force outfit.

I don't know my neighbor. In fact, I really don't even know the name of the street one block over that parallels mine. I just live here, inside. I wouldn't know the name of the young lady who lives behind my house if the mailman didn't put her stuff in our box periodically. So I was really no help, and probably won't be any time soon.

It's disturbing to know that the guy next door is being investigated. Or is he? I wouldn't know an FBI credential from a fake, and I sure as hell wouldn't know an Air Force investigator's credential. So who is the man next door? Or, who are these fresh faced kids pretending to be government officials?

This is too creepy.

I'm going to see if I can find somewhere on the net that tells me what real FBI credentials look like, because I really don't like the idea of people playing Agent Smith on my front porch.

Don't get too creeped out. Perhaps the person just is applying for a job that requires a routine background investigation. I had one when I went into the air force, and now that airport security inspectors are federal employees, there is a whole new catagory of people that need background investigations in order to do their job.

And if you don't like the idea of Agent Smith, visualize Agent Jay instead. At least the guys at MiB have a sense of humor.

Could be that your neighbor is former military and they are trying to call him back to duty or he could have been an AWOL case. Or, he could be an alien...........
