NT 19/31: Dear Sir or Madam


I didn't think I'd get around to doing this until I had my own book to do it with, but I'm glad that the opportunity came early. I autographed a book, and I don't mean that I just wrote an inscription on the inside cover of a book in the graphic novel series that Lynn and I exchange on birthdays, or that I pretended to be John Adams reaching out from the grave to wish my dad a Merry Christmas in the pages of his biography. No, this was my own handwriting on a page filled with my own words. The book I contributed an essay to last year is out, coinciding with the 30th b-days of many friends and two relatives. What better way to help them ring in the decade than with a little loving self-promotion?
