I got a very strange message today in the mail. It’s hand-signed by a known internet personality and obviously took some time and money to arrange. The person in question doesn’t want anything pertaining to this message to get out, and specifically asked for those who received it to not post details on blogs. Okay, sounds interesting. I’m game, and I’ll honor your request.
Hey, R: the Spirit is willing. Count me in. But how the heck did you get my address?
