Dear Governor Walker

Thank you.

Although you are not the elusive guy-I’d-like-most-to-buy-a-beer, I am still very happy with living in a red Wisconsin. I know you’ve worked pretty hard to make that happen.

With that I’ll announce I’m on hiatus until I get this stupid book written. We have a strange relationship, the book and I. It certainly gets me out of bed earlier in the mornings, but I can often be found banging my head against the wall by noon.

Anyway, if I want to get it done before the man’s first term is over, I need to pay attention to it. Combine that with wanting to enjoy the three weeks my lovely daughter is home before heading to Ireland, and well, something has to give.

You guys won’t miss me a bit. Go have a great summer. I’ll be back in a few weeks.
