Dear M

Even Big Ben's under the security cam? Official Secrets Act, eh? We've got some actors in California alright, and they are not on the studio lot where they belong. "Turkey Tet" for "Lilo" in the jailhouse? Can you see the ball sailing over the light tower? You sorry psychotic kooks don't even get the "inside joke" most of the time. Why am I so unhappy? Let's talk baseball briefly, GEORGE WILL. The big righthanded kid (me) develops a good pickoff move, and it's all "BALK!" Painting the corners yielded, "Ball three! Ball Four!" Start backtalking the ump, and it was, "Shut up, or we'll toss you out of the game." Hey there, Nazis & frustrated Commies I've nicknamed "1917 Types," I can barely add and subtract, so the only "genius" mantle I'll ever claim is in the world of POLITICS.

Meanwhile, HARVARD LAW, YALE LAW, CORNELL LAW, STANFORD LAW, etc. etc. etc. should batten down the hatches for Hughes instruction in what I am calling "Mafia Nonverbal Defamation of Character," and I'm just a bit fed up with it. So, here's the "plan." 1) Jam Big Ben at 6 a.m.; 2) Light-off a smoke bomb up by the gears to make all assume it is the work of evil A-rabs; 3) Knock down the London-town power grid; 4) Pull up to Parliament in a truck full of POLAND WATER; 5) Sit at the door in my grubby Ventura County homeless man garb, and to mimic APOLLO 13-talk, in preparation for negotiations by candlelight (a Willie IV touch), I shall say, "Kingdom, we've got a problem."

And then, when I take a break from simple crown duties and get elected President of the United States, the language cited below.....I've just never seen it, never heard of it, and if you disagree, my black powder pistol comes off the wall in the Oval Office. As St. Louis sportscaster JACK BUCK once famously hollered, "It's happening....again."
