Accept you approved to address to Admiral Donald Trump? I don’t beggarly an email, tweet, argument or some cyberbanking anatomy of agnate but rather a absolute letter. One with a brand on it.
The aftermost U.S. admiral I wrote an absolute letter to was George H.W. Bush in 1991. He’s asleep now, but alike aback he was alive, I agnosticism he would accept remembered it.
I told George that I didn’t vote for him but that he seemed to be accomplishing a almost acceptable job of administration the aboriginal Persian Gulf War admitting my antecedent audacious abridgement of confidence.
I’m abiding he slept bigger alive that some guy in Utah was giving him acclaim for not axis the Gulf War into a nuclear one.
My letter was alone a few paragraphs and concluded with a question. I capital know, already the war was over, whether we could do to the IRS what we’d done to Saddam Hussein. I ample it was a fair catechism aback George was hollering so abundant about continuing up to absolved aggression.
Astonishingly, I got a letter aback from the admiral about a ages later. It isn’t actual long. In fact, I accept it appropriate here.
It’s addressed to me — or at atomic to a Mr. Kirby — and it’s abounding of phrases like “courageous troops,” “ruthless aggression” and “tremendously proud.” There’s annihilation in it about smart-bombing the IRS.
I don’t accept George absolutely wrote aback to me. Color me cynical, but I aloof couldn’t see him sitting at his board in his underwear with a cup of morning motivation, disturbing to appropriately byword his thoughts to me, which is absolutely how I bound my letter to him.
My money says George never saw my letter — alike admitting it has his signature at the bottom.
The actuality that George didn’t address to me alone doesn’t bother me, but I don’t feel appropriate either. After all, 8 actor added letter writers apparently got absolutely the aforementioned response.
Here’s how I amount my “personal” letter from the admiral was crafted. In the White House basement — appropriate abutting to the Secret Service submachine-gun ambit area Nancy Reagan already captivated her seances — was a allowance abounding with computers and civilian servants. These employees’ job was to apprehend (defuse) the hundreds of bags of belletrist that caked in addressed to the president.

Civilian assistant • “OK, we got a ‘fair job’ and … uh-oh, what’s this? ‘I didn’t vote for you’ and a absolute acknowledgment of ‘bombing the IRS.’ Acceptable Lord, that gets a Z-9 reply. Wait a minute, here’s a brief ‘God bless.’ Let’s accent it aback to an R-3 response.”
