The Proctors

Recognizing that some people may think a dead patriot is a dead patriot and nothing more, and that the causes of all such selfless sacrifice become immediately irrelevant upon expiration, a Proctoriate was established to issue periodic encyclicals designed to reassure the living of the continuing necessity for patriotic entertainments and occasional bloodlettings. The three-member Proctoriate serves staggered terms of six years each. The tendency has been to draw candidates from among the clergy, who are persons used to finding truth where no fact is in evidence.
