Reporter's Note: Sometimes I change strings on my guitars, and sometimes I change the whole instrument. And yet, oddly, at all times I write to the White House.
Dear Mr. President,
I have been thinking about buying a new guitar. A Gretsch. Which is interesting, because only a few years ago I distinctly did not like them. They seemed too heavy. The design struck me as clunky in some parts. But now, mysteriously, I have grown inexpressibly fond of all the things that I disliked. Now they seem like lovely, beautifully formed, and imminently playable works of art.
