Dear Mr. President – June 29, 2020

June 29 2020
Dear Mr. President,
“Well, it’s been a quiet week here in Lake Woebegon”. Do you remember the Public Radio show, A Prairie Home Companion? That’s how Garrison Keillor, the show’s host and creator, always started his story/monologue. We would sit around the fire on Saturday nights just waiting for the show to start. We ‘d settle in to enjoy two hours of music, comedy and the monologue. People would just quietly listening to the calm and gentle humor of Garrison’s stories of the people of Lake Woebegon, the town “where all the men are strong, all the women are good-looking and all the children are above average”. It was like taking a deep breath and letting all the stress and strain of the week magically disappear. I miss that feeling.
Your schedule also seemed quiet this weekend. I saw your Tweet on Friday that you were not going to your golf club in New Jersey but staying in Washington to deal with Law and Order. Good job. I’m unclear on how you did that but everything seemed cleaned up by Saturday morning because you went golfing then. I’m also not clear on when you returned to Washington. You did come back, didn’t you? There seems to be a few new problems brewing. Did you hear about the Russians trying to pay off Taliban soldiers to kill American soldiers?!?! Did you ever hear anything about that? Apparently it was in your PDB (President’s Daily Briefing) which I think you get once or twice a week. This seems to be an important item to miss and I think you should check your notes.

I did read that one of your Tweets was taken down because of language. Were you wearing your hearing aids? It’s probably an important thing to remember before you post someone else’s video. You don’t want to be accused of being, well, anything bad.
Since you took care of Law and Order on Friday, I didn’t read anything about unusual violent events this weekend. Whew.
The rest of the weekend and so far today, is also relatively calm. I am giving you credit for listening to my advice on Friday – DON’T TALK. It was VPPence who spoke more last weekend, but no one is actually listening to him. He is as calming as Garrison Keillor’s stories but much less fun.
