Hi Daniel,

I just heard your piece on NPR regarding the fellow who was running for Student Council in the 50s. Sounds an awful lot like a fellow I knew, including the blond hair and ivory skin and he was CRAZY about politics. I often wonder whatever happened to Phillip. Is it possible we know the sme guy? Did you go to Lakeview HS?

Best regards,

By the way, Sedona went BLUE, I’m very proud to say.

Daniel replies:

Of course, the piece was fiction, like everything I write. I think I heard he was elected to the Illinois state legislature at some point, the fictional guy in my story.
