Letter to the Editor: Dear Santa

’Tis the season, and it seems you’re backlogged on my wish list. I’ve not won the lottery yet, and there is no Ferrari in my driveway. I have a proposition for you: I’ll forfeit the winning ticket and I’ll muddle through with my used car for just one wish. You might be surprised to know that a game show host/new and used building salesman became president in 2016. I know it sounds diabolical. One theory is it was the Russkies, with the help of a guy named Mark in charge of propaganda, and some college, who proclaimed him president, even though he lost the popular vote by “huge” millions. This is the deal: One of the major networks is exhuming a TV show called To Tell the Truth and they want him to host it. He appears to be out of his element as president, and this is where his true talents really lie. Thank you in advance.

Happy holidays and peace to all.
