"Politics And Insane Asylums"
Will Campbell wrote this in response to my article
about poor people not being eligible for assistance
if they are 10% or 11% below the poverty level.
They have to be at least 12% below.

I have tried and tried for years to like and admire you,
but, until you sent me this latest literary endeavor
about how the 12% thingie factors into our society,
I never really appreciated you before.
Yes, Jack, there isn't a Santa anymore.
Our powerfool leaders have let greed and insanity rule them.
You probably don't remember the year of 1986
when I ran for the Orange County Commission.
I also ran for the State House Of Reps in 1988.
Naturally, I lost both times...
I was too witty and brilliant for the masses at the time.
Sad! I coulda been a contender.
I love politics and insane asylums.
Be thankful that you and I were born when there was a tad of honesty and leadership.
You gotta love ol' Truman.
I think...therefore I can't GET elected.
