A Monkish Existence

Details of alleged misconduct involving a Secret Service detail assigned to the President in Columbia are seeping out. At the end of its report, the New York Times quotes a former agent:

Daniel Bongino, a former Secret Service agent with the presidential protection division who left the agency in May, said that while agent misconduct occasionally occurs, in his experience most agents who are on assignment but off duty lead a “monkish” existence focused on working out, eating and sleeping.

Work out, eat, sleep? It’s a wonder the monasteries are not bursting with candidates.
