  • Allie’s Letter To The President

    My daughter is ten now, so it was inevitable she’d begin writing letters to the Oval Office. Why mess around with Senators after all, she wants her issues addressed fast. Her main issue at the moment is gas-powered cars polluting the world, which I admit bothers me too. But I suspect her of using cars as a blind to further her real agenda, which crops up often in the letter. Judge for yourself.

    PS: She bought a typewriter at a yard sale this weekend.

    Shooting every car into space might take some doing. I wonder if she’d consider ponies issued to all ten-year-old girls to be a feasible compromise?

    I’ll bring it before Congress, I think we can build consensus on this bill.

    Did she consider what about all the “horse pollution” aka poop?

    How about all the pollution from rocketing all cars into space?

    Can I just say that this was an awesome letter, and I love that she genuinely wants to make the world a better place. Do your thing, Allie!

    I second the motion! That’s the genuine horsepower!
