I sent a letter to President Obama on August 10th. I shared it here on my blog with the same title if you want to read it. Is it a coincidence he’s visiting my city today? I think Warren Buffet is a secret reader of my blog and my letter inspired him to write the President asking the government to raise taxes on the wealthy. The media ignored my letter, but highly publicized his. Disappointed, but not surprised I received a standard form letter from the White House this week. I wonder if this is the same one Warren got.
