"Dear Mr. ----:
I do, indeed, love hot sauce!
Thank you so much for sending me two bottles of your favorite; I look forward to trying it. I remain deeply appreciative of your thoughtfulness and good cheer, as well as the enthusiasm that you and your fellow Ron Paul supporters have brought to the public square.
With thanks and best regards, I am
Hillary Rodham Clinton"
The other story I heard today came from a friend named Walt.
Walt is Jill Japan's husband, and Jill just came back from an event in New York City where Hillary was the guest of honor. Jill was off and running, so Walt gave me the basics about the event.
The event was a fundraiser for children's healthcare.
Tickets sold from $1,000 to $10,000 each.
The event was a huge success and Jill was overjoyed! Over 1 million dollars was raised for the kids.
Everyone was thrilled!
Everyone but me, that is.
Hillary Clinton was a no-show.
She apparently was caught up at the White House with President Obama solving some global crisis or other.
She did, for the record, talk to everyone on a giant screen.
I'm sure glad I didn't mortgage my house, or invent some elaborate scheme pretending I wanted to help save the children, just to go to see Hillary.
Apparently some people, like James, Jill and Hillary, do things for sincere and unselfish reasons.
I, on the other hand, would probably have sang this song just to weasel my way in to see Hillary, and then been profoundly disappointed if she didn't show up.
