Here's mine:Dear Mr. Keller:Mr. David reports that he received a quick response:
I want to thank you personally for breaking the story on the government illegally using the SWIFT system to track money.
This administration is always breaking the law. They all belong behind bars. Just remember, it's your duty to make sure they're kicked out of office, in the most humiliating way possible. Republicans are killers of poor people all around the world. Crimes against humanity should not go unpunished.
Keep up the good work.

Dear Mr. Keller:
Thank you so much for letting the whole world know how the Republican-run government is using the SWIFT system to track terrorists' (and who knows who else's?) international money transfers. The arrogance of this administration shows no bounds, as does their utter disdain for both the laws that require warrants for any inquiry whatsoever -- not to mention the status of the New York Times. While a few additional terrorist operations may or may not happen, they are none too high a price to pay for making sure that the Bush administration and particularly Karl Rove and the rest of the evildoers are hounded at every corner for the next two and a half years.
There should be a zero-tolerance policy for Republicans; let freedom ring!
A little too subtle, maybe?
Edited to add: Welcome Powerline readers. Hope you'll check out my other blog, as well; it focuses on issues around carrying of handguns, particularly in Minnesota.
