Letters Wanted

This post will remain at the top of the site until after December 20th as a reminder to get those letters written. Additional posts are stacking up below, so scroll down for the new stuff.

SlagleRock has a call for letters to the troops. He has a friend and comrade in arms who will be deploying on Christmas Eve, and this friend has challenged him to produce more letters than the previous letter drive. The plan is that they will be printed and carried into Iraq to be distributed as far and wide as they can be.

The last drive netted 320 letters, all of which were printed and distributed. Do you think we can top 500 in this drive?

Go read his post, and drop your letters into his comments. Or post one on your site with a trackback to him. He will get any letters left in the comment threads of posts tracked back to his post. You can also leave them here.

This post will remain at the top of this site until December 20th, when hopefully we will have enough letters to spread a lot of holiday wishes. They may be late for Christmas, but that's no reason not to bid them good cheer.

Write. This is your homework assignment for the month. Don't make me get out my red pencil.

Update 12/7: I just got word from Slagle that we have received 50 letters, 10% of our goal. We have 17 days before the letters are carried onto an airplane bound for Iraq. We're not asking for huge essays here, just a few words of kindness, a brief look at home, and wishes for health and safety.

"My kid did this," "the dog saw snow for the first time," "I wish you could have seen the look" kinds of things can lighten a day. A few brief, personal letters will make more impact and be passed further than something more serious, however well written.

Who is this Um Yeah coward who left a link to an irrelevant webpage and was too afraid to leave a real email address. You see we need cowards in this world. People like this are great for posting their "pooper scooper service $2.95" signs on various phone poles because they are too ignorant to get a job and clearly stand for nothing so what would motivate anyone to hire a douche bag like, Um Yeah.

Oh, and one more thing even though this person is clearly an uneducated moron I am still proud to defend his/her right to be a jackass!

SlagleRock Out!
