UPDATE to “Dear Mr. President”
After I posted my letter to President Obama to this blog, I also dropped a hard copy in the mail and sent it off to the White House. After a few weeks transpired, I figured I would not receive a response (nor was I expecting one), but much to my surprise, I was contacted via phone on Thursday. I was asked not to publicly blog about it yet, but if you drop me an email I can tell you all about it offline. Exciting!
Coincidentally, here is an article The New York Times wrote yesterday about presidential letter writing: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/20/us/politics/20letters.html
