Hey, Mr. President,
Stephen, here again. The golfer guy from Vancouver who recently advised you to resign and turn the executive branch over to Mike Pence (although now I’m not so sure that Meek Mike could handle the job). I haven’t heard back from you, and, being Jewish, I was worried. Also wondering if you enjoyed the book I sent. That was the one I wrote called The Mindful Golfer (or did someone in the mail room shortstop it for themselves?). Anyway, given all the added stresses and strains of the virus, the press, the poll numbers, and the germ ridden White House, I’m wondering if you had a chance to consider my suggestion from my previous letter. This could be an ideal time for your resignation what with lovely golf weather ahead and the country opening up again, and consequently the potential for a surge in the virus. Seems to me you could effectively cut your losses and come out looking more and more like Lincoln.
Anywho, I don’t want to be a nudge but how about it? Makes a whole lot of sense to get out of Dodge while the gettin’ out is good. Think of it: No more press briefings with those nasty questions from CNN reporters, no more meeting with Tony Fauci who may well be a Chinese agent, no more mask wearing staff members who probably are making faces at you behind those masks, no more White House meals that are likely laced with Lysol, no more watching those traitors and government infiltrators at Fox News every night, no more Tweeting at 3 AM, and no more son in law running around like a chicken in a poultry plant pretending he’s Nostradamus.
Think of how life might be in retirement. My model is that 111 year old African American vet who when asked his secret to long life answered, “ I smoke about 12-14 cigars a day, drink good whiskey, and have a bowl of Butter Pecan ice cream before bed every night.” He just died recently but I understand with a smile on his face , which, I understand, was not masked.
Anywhichway, I just thought I’d touch base and make another pitch for my most excellent suggestion, one of the GREATEST suggestions ever. When you get a chance, let me know what you think….between you and I, of course. As you might say, “Let’s try it out. What have we got to lose?”
Oh, and be extra careful of that NASTY coronavirus. I heard it’s skulking about and creating quite a stir in the White House.
Love your golf blog and have now just discovered this one.
We are on the same wave length. I think he needs to follow your suggestion.
I’m tired of winning too much. Keep the cards and letters rolling to DJT. He just might finally take your advice. NBC should not have taken his call. When he came on, I flipped it off. The TV and him!

Great to hear from you, David, and thanks so much for subscribing here and to my golf blog. My intent with this blog is to keep the pressure on here and via Facebook and Twitter. I feel a deep sense of urgency around this next election–deeper than I’ve ever felt before. The pen is my way of getting my views across. And it’s people like you who give me hope and inspiration to continue putting my opinions out there. Please spread the word to others, if you’re so inclined.
Thanks again, David, and wishing you good health during this pandemic and beyond.

Dear lonsman Stephen,
Long time since I checked in with you (Looks like you’ve been busy, ….and sometimes there are no words.).
I’m the from Philly suburbs, in Hawaii with my spouse now 18 years via NorCal. (ring a bell?) I see you and Ruth are now in WA., and you too are adding cancer survivor to your resume. Congratulations!
You are right- on about all your above ~ keep it up; adds to the energy needed to end this abomination. Your urgency is understood by many. I’ll forward.
With your recent posts, it just seemed timely to say Hello. Would enjoy more family news updates via my email if you can.

Thanks for forwarding the blog. I’m really wanting to spread the word as we approach this momentous election.
