Greetings Lisa,

Well let me say this on this eve of the election: You certainly have
done your part to defeat George W. Bush.
I know how much of your heart you have invested in this election. I
know the passion.
I know it makes a difference when voices emerge
and speak out, Michael Moore, Al Franken, Lisa Casey, all part of a
wonderful stew called democracy.
You deserve this election in the same way that this country deserves
John Kerry to be president.
So come Monday evening, when you set your pen and mouse down from your
final message, know this: You have done everything in your power to promote truth and peace. For
that I thank you. God Bless you and...

God Bless America

Bill Tyler

Thank you for including me in the same sentence as Michael Moore and Al Franken.
