Letters to the President Nov 2nd

(以下引用)Dear Mr. President,First thing this morning, just as you were waking up, did you think “Well, election day is finally here,” or was it more like, “Hey, it’s Tuesday and I’m the President of the United States!” I’m pretty sure if I were you I’d start every day with that second thought.—— I suppose that’s just another reason why I’d make a lousy president.Anyway, Election Day is at hand and I’m thinking about a line from that old Rudyard Kipling poem, “If.” “If you can meet with triumph and disaster, and treat those two impostors just the same.——-It means “Don’t see your achievements as a measure of your greatness, nor your shortcomings as a measure of your weakness. Both must always be weighed against each other and the totality of your life.”Applying that to the events of today, I think it means that winning a high political office in this land is so fraught with potential missteps, unpredictable landmines, and sheer luck, that only a fool would say he or she truly earned it. ——-So I think the best thing you and your political pals can do on a day like this is hope for the best, and remember come what may, that this one vote on this one day is just that…a measure of your success and failure, but only one.

Letters to the President   Nov 3rd

(以下引用) Dear Mr.President  ——-You and your Democrats learned that the hard way this week. For those members of Congress who danced in to the beat of Obama in 2008, it had to be the shortest two years of their lives; going from hello to goodbye on the same fist bump. ——-They clearly wanted things to change, so you can’t blame them for lack of effort. But voters are interested in results, not passing out gold stars for trying. And the timeline for those results has been shrinking. ——-So what do you do now? Good question. I don’t have all the answers (and quite possibly I don’t have any) but I’ve always thought that revolutionary leaders have short shelf lives. Their revolutions must produce real results quickly. Those results don’t have to be earth-shattering, but they have to be something that people can grab, or their followers will put down their flags, go home for dinner, and the evolution is over.

Letters to the President   Nov 4th

(以下引用)Dear Mr. President,When I was a teenager dabbling in magic, one of the harder things to master was the art of forcing a card. (The art of getting a date was a close second, but that’s for another letter.)The point is to give the impression to your “assistant” that he or she is freely choosing from a fanned deck, when in truth you are subtly guiding a particular card into their fingers. Like most young wizards, I would either be so timid that I would miss the target, or I would so obviously push the intended card that Ray Charles could have seen it coming.Gradually, however, as I grew older, I developed my technique.——- There are a few simple secrets. First, give your “assistant” something real to do. Let him actually shuffle the cards; mix them up as thoroughly as he likes. Then locate your chosen target with a quick riffle and proceed.Second, you have to make it look easy – as if you enuinely could care less which card he pulls from the deck.
