So there I am, innocently opening my post office box, rifling through mail,  
throwing away 50 envelopes of junk and keeping three, and I come to a large 
white envelope addressed to my husband, personally.  "Mr. James Krueger".  
no less, www.GeorgeWBush.com.  I wonder suddenly if my husband is a closet 
republican.  If he has joined some treacherous group I am unaware of.  It is 
stamped with blood red large capital letters warning:  "Do not bend!  
Presidential photo enclosed".  It was too much for my curiosity.  I mean, 
really.  Inside 
I find a generous offer to contribute to the Bush/Cheney campaign and ...... 
an 8 1/2 x 11 colour photo of the Pres himself and First Lady all in white and 
below....be still my beating heart....in graceful script:  "To:  James H. 
Kruger, Thank you for your early commitment and dedication as a Charter Member 
the campaign in Missouri.  Grassroots leaders like you are the key to 
building a winning team.  Best Wishes," and the signatures in royal blue ink of 
Bush and GwB.  I entered my home telling my husband that, darling, I have 
such a wonderful surprise.  He was understandably shocked.  He didn't know he 
a Charter Member of the GWB campaign in Missouri.  He swears to me he has not 
broken a sacred trust of our marriage and turned right-wing.  He notes that 
obviously they don't have his voting record on file.  I'm not sure whether to 
return the photo with a personal note, allow my children to play with it, or 
frame it.  So whaddya think it cost Dubbya to xerox and mail one of these to 
every registered voter in America?  And whaddya think the returns will be?  How 
many undecided voters will open theirs, and honk noisily, "Hey Marta -- looka 
this -- he *does* care about us, hell he even knows my middle initial!  We 
*gotta* vote for him now.  Oh, and have a 20?"  However, the package was worth 
every penny Dubbya spent -- I sorely needed the laugh.

Not, I repeat *Not* a member of any sort of the Bush campaign in Missouri.
