Subject: SUBJECT: UNITED STATES ELECTION

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN;

I AM WRITING A PROTEST LETTER TO YOUR PAPER BECAUSE THIS IS AN ELECTION THAT CONCERNS THE UNITED STATES, NOT ENGLAND!!!!!! RECENTLY I HAVE RUN ACROSS SEVERAL NEWSPAPER ARTICLES FROM YOUR COUNTRY ABOUT 2004 ELECTION, AND I AM SICK AND TIRED OF IT. OUR COUNTRY IS IN A TWO PARTY FIGHT AND IT DOES NOT CONCERN YOUR MEDDLING IN IT. YOU'RE PEOPLE SENT LETTERS TO VOTERS IN PENNSYLVANIA TELLING THEM HOW TO VOTE!!!!!!! JUST GET THE NEWS AND LEAVE US ALONE TO VOTE AND LET US RUN OUR COUNTRY ALONE!!!!!!

I AM CERTAIN YOU WOULD NOT LIKE OUR COMING OVER THERE, TELLING YOUR COUNTRY HOW TO RUN YOUR ELECTIONS!!

THANK YOU VERY MUCH

P@T GILLESPIE

Well, the thing is it's not like we've been telling OUR readers to write to Americans and tell them how to vote. And it's not as if the US is averse to a bit of meddling. And was it really necessary to use a full year's supply off exclamation marks?

So, we were playing "Who is your fictional animal character boyfriend?" after dinner, which means you have to choose a boyfriend from all of the fictional animal characters in existence, and I chose Top Cat, and the other two choices were Timmy The Dog (from the Famous Five) and Black Beauty, and I mean, I don't know, I realised today that Top Cat is the only one who can talk. Even if Timmy The Dog IS "soooo licky" and Black Beauty is hung, well, like a stallion, probably, I think it's weird that they can't talk.
