Latest letter to the editor to the East Hampton Star from my wonderful & brilliant, Uncle Richard:

Want to know the extent of the loathing for the President and the current administration amongst the American people?
Last Saturday, at a fine Italian Restaurant in Milburn, New Jersey, I celebrated my birthday with my family. Amongst the varied small gifts I received from the kids and grand kids was a navy blue "T"shirt emblazoned across the front with big white letters:
"I never thought I'd miss Nixon"
a very appropriate and meaningful gift for the ever devout, pugnacious liberal from Bensonhurst, Brooklyn that I am and the kids know me to be.
I immediately donned the shirt over my existing one, right at the table, and wore it in the restaurant and as we walked towards the exit from the rear. As I walked, the diners in the very crowded restaurant saw the shirt and slogan and the reactions were amazing... ranging from outright applause to laughs and smiles, and then, believe it or not, several lovely female diners, of a certain age, strangers to me, jumped up from their table, grabbed me around the shoulders, and conducted an impromptu photo shoot!
If only our lilly livered Congressmen could have seen and felt those spontaneous reactions, maybe then they would wake up and impeach these sickening, malevolent, lawless, arrogant clowns in the White House who disgrace our country around the world, and destroy the very Constitution and liberties previous just wars were fought to protect.
