President Winters said I got him elected.  “Looks matter, sugar, and you make me look damn good.”  I started my career at Daggett’s Funeral Home, prettying up death to give comfort to the living.  

Saxon keeps me around so I can fix Lucy’s black eyes for the camera.  It’s a useful talent here.  Once, Carmela got slapped by that bastard Jimmy Stone.  She was terrified her husband would notice, jump the SOB, and get shot. 

Just like the old days at Daggett’s, I hide ugly truth from folks who don’t need to know it.  The President was right: looks matter.
