How are you and the wife doing?  I heard you were living in your vacation house on the shore, after that strange electrical malfunction set fire to the white house that you had near Philly.  Horrible accident, that.  I hope you saved your collection of vintage hunting rifles, as I know it was quite valuable even though it was entirely non-functioning.  Not to mention, the huge explosions that would have been triggered by all that gunpowder!

It was probably a squirrel.. those little beasts are quite the household terrorists.  They may have chewed through some electrical wiring.  And the house burned to the ground?  If something like that happened to us, I'd probably have to rob Fort Knox and escape to Mexico.  Ha ha.  


We should plan to meet up next month.  We'll be rolling in the grass at an Eric Clapton concert in NYC, and he's a great live performer.  I bet he'll be soulfully selling 'Cocaine' and 'Layla', pushing the limits of sound until they crack with ecstasy.    

If this plan sounds good to you, the best place to gather our forces would be near the Penny's Pretzels stand in Grand Central Station, according to the online blueprints.  You should bring your gang in from the south, shooting photos the entire way.  We could even head out for a sightseeing patrol of New York, maybe occupy Wall Street.. I mean, just a few feet of sidewalk, of course.  It is much safer than it used to be.  There are guards stationed at regular intervals, armed with tasers, so it is quite unlikely we would all die in a hail of gunfire.  Ha ha.

Be sure to let me know how this sounds.. I'll watch my email at work, because you have that military-grade encryption software for your email, and that's the only place I can decrypt your humorous responses.  Hope you can make it!

P.S.  Jet fuel, tanker truck, derailed locomotive, massive casualties, fertilizer plant, plastic explosive, wired timers, States' Rights, God is Great, Ronald Reagan, school vouchers, Tea Party, Hitler.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
