Letters to the President # 733: Living large in middletown

Reporter's Note: Barack Obama has now been President for two years. Which means I’ve been the presidential pen pal just as long.

Dear Mr. President,

It occurs to me that you and I passed the middle mark in our correspondence recently. You’ve been in office two years, I’ve written to you every single day, and you have replied on a regular basis. Oh sure, not with an actual letter or phone call, but I can tell as I’ve listened to your speeches and watched your actions that you’ve been paying attention.

And frankly, I think it’s probably a good idea that you don’t make a fuss about how much you are counting on me. It would only make all those “official” advisors down there at the White House jealous. So, nudge nudge, wink wink, say no more.
