Dear Mr. Pinkwater,

Horror of horrors! I am apparently an uneducated, cultural wasteland as I don’t even recognize your name. Oh, the shame of it all! If you can forgive me my previous ignorance, I would love to become a great fan of yours and start kissing up immediately. I happened onto your website by complete accident, and enjoyed your responses to the many emails you have listed. You remind me a great deal of one of my best friends who is also a sharp witted aficionado of verbal response. Have a kind and forgiving heart for those who have not been exposed to your greatness, and I wish you continued success in your future endeavors.

Daniel replies:

By COMPLETE accident? I think not. I think you were guided. I think this was meant. Begin reading at once. This may be the answer to all sorts of questions.
