President Vladimir Putin
Dear President Putin:
I can’t tell you how relieved I was to see you and President Bush at the G8 Meeting, being friends again! You guys were too close to let something like a war come between you.
I remember when you first met and President Bush said he looked into your eyes and saw your soul. Remember that? I wonder what he saw? Do you think maybe he was using some kind of electronic device?
Did you see into his soul? What did it look like? Has it changed since last time?
Now that you two are friends again, you might be able to pass on a message from me: I’ve been trying to tell him that the American flag pin he wears on his lapel is crooked. He doesn’t seem to notice. I know it’s a touchy subject, but if your friends can’t tell you, who can? He might listen to you more than he does to me.
