OPENING A CAN OF DISASTER WITH WACO

Former Senator John Danforth, appointed by Attorney General Janet Reno to lead the independent inquiry into the Waco compound disaster, sits with Reno in her office.

Danforth holds in his lap a canister labeled, "Waco File -- Caution: Tear Gas." He wriggles the top of the canister, attempting to get the cap off.

Looking on from her desk, Reno says, "Go ahead. Open it."

POSTSCRIPT: Could be crocodile tear gas.
