Dear President Trump, I can always tell when you and your administration are stressed because your contact page “autoreplies” are delayed such that notes back to me come in odd clumps days later rather than arriving within a few minutes of submission. This latest round has been going on since the Mueller report was finalized. … Continue reading Enlightening bolts and Mx.
Dear President Trump, This will likely seem a strange place from which to launch today’s letter to you, but bear with me and we’ll see if I can pull it off. Two minutes ago I gave one of our toilets a “good enough” scrub with the toilet brush. While doing so, I remembered how a … Continue reading A case for impeachment
Dear President Trump, It looks like if I went to a National Park or Monument (or, starting today, any of the Smithsonian Museums) and wanted to send you a postcard to mark the occasion, I’d need to purchase the postcard somewhere other than those places since the visitor centers are closed along with nearly all … Continue reading Adding to your legacy
Dear President Trump, It’s late – after 9pm and I’m only now getting to your letter. There’s no good reason for such a late start; we didn’t do anything particularly fun this evening or out of the ordinary.

I went down hard but missed my face this time so don’t have to have more orthodontic work done. I did, however, wrench my … Continue reading I fell again and I’m really cranky
Good Morning President Trump, It may be somewhat self-serving but I've decided that focusing for now on positives is patriotic, basically in the same way dissent is patriotic. You have gotten far too much mileage out of focusing on and fanning people's fears, trying to convince us that things are dire and only you can … Continue reading Positivity – day 2, focusing on positives is patriotic
Dear President Trump, This morning on my run it was dark. There was a raised part of the sidewalk I didn't see and I went down hard. Fortunately I didn't break anything but I'm quite banged up and it looks like someone punched me in the mouth with rough sandpaper taped to their fist. It … Continue reading Deals with Devils don’t leave much for the rest of us
