i check my mail for personal mail i sent to mitch.  i have been sending
personal mail explaining what i am doing to potential VOLUNTEERS so as
not to offend them and yet still protect the ones we have.

you think that having mitch send this bad news himself is rude?  i think
it is beautiful.  i think you are rude.

i am also concerned because every photo i ever saw of you, mitch was in
the background very close to a keyboard.  i have a theory that you do
not function without mitch at the keyboard.  this makes me as nervous
and rashy as using windows does.

i am planning on screaming "whee!" so loudly when i get the ticket that
you will be able to hear this in berlin.

as for mitch writing his own mail -- he has a certain sort of elegance
in his use of words that you and i both lack.
