Sorry for the lateness of this letter. I have been busy catching up on some much-needed sleep these last few days and haven't had as much free time in the mornings as a result. I hope it's not too much of an inconvenience to you to get these letters so late.
Today was a bloody day in Iraq--bombings, attempted assassinations, over 40 bodies turning up shot in the head. But you spent the day traveling around talking about how social security is a looming crisis and wondering why nobody seems to believe you. I don't know if they ever will again.
