Money, Money, Money

Hey Barry:

Hope you and your family had a great Turkey day.

I been thinkin bout couple things.

Numba 1: Please God don let Ron Paul run monetary policy.

Talk bout disaster - guaranteed effin certain to be the end of the Free World in 5 months.

Holy Cow, Barry - cant let dis happen, no how, no way

Numba 2: Poor saps at the B of A Board cant find a CEO.

Don it make ya wanna cry?

But, is OK - I'll do it - be the CEO - any time, jes call me or email me. Ya'll can have me for anyting over $30K per year.

Mebbe if'n I up the price to $300K, I'll get more respect.

Watta ya think Barry? Call Timmy an ask im. Dem guys gotta do sumthin before rigor mortis sets in.

Effin guaranteed to be better than wot those saps have now, which is a minus.

Your pal,
