You can't get one Ian.
Can I have your Corner?
Well, I am about as regular as one person can get... I got my pen out.
I want a check for... 100,000 or any amount, lol. I like this. I will split with Terry, we are buds.
....Imagine you wrote a letter to the White House to share your personal struggle and instead of receiving a form letter in return, President Obama cut you a check.
It's happened, and more than once, according to Washington Post reporter Eli Saslow's new book "Ten Letters: The Stories Americans Tell Their President." Fellow Post reporter Nia-Malika Henderson writes Friday on a surprising excerpt from Saslow's book:
A few times during his presidency, Obama admitted, he had written a personal check or made a phone call on the writer's behalf, believing that it was his only way to ensure a fast result. "It's not something I should advertise, but it has happened," he told [Saslow]. Many other times, he had forwarded letters to government agencies or Cabinet secretaries after attaching a standard, handwritten note that read: "Can you please take care of this?"
When I was about 8 or 9, I was sick with a bad cold and I wrote and told President Eisenhower about that. He wrote back to "Master Joseph Lee O." with a hand-written "Get well" note in a hand-addressed envelope ... and now I cannot find that note anywhere so I can sell his signature on FleaBay!
"Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events and small minds discuss people." --Eleanor Roosevelt
That is really cool Lee. It's ashame you can't find it, that would be a real treasure to have. I would frame it.
Or take his *check* to the bank!
Trust me, I wouldn't be so lucky. I'd get an IOU... lol
...and come to think of it, the IOU will be for One million dollars! payable when I turn 88! LOL.
He's in Africa, again. OR, maybe, still at the Drivers Bureau... lol. I had a horrible thought, what if they made him go back to the UK for bucking the system at the drivers' center?
