Saints Fever

My octogenarian, retired school teacher mother forwarded me an email that she was sent by a friend who's also a retired school teacher:
Just a reminder that Drew is a finalist for the FedEx Air Player of
the year. Please visit to vote.. Spread the word!

Over the last several days, many people have asked me the real reason why I decided not to run for mayor. It's quite simple really -- after thoughtful consideration and discussion with friends, I decided that, though I'd make a great mayor, my candidacy wouldn't be the most wonderful thing possible for the city. And, when you get right down to it, I'm nothing if not a wonderful person.

Now, I know that rumors have been circulating that there other reasons why I decided not to run. Don't believe it. As a matter of fact, I discussed the matter with a prominent member of the local media who, having met me, is now qualified to tell you that I'm a moral person and follow my inner moral compass. Moreover, having been told by members of my inner circle that my reasons were moral ones, he'll scoff* at anybody who hasn't met my inner circle but dares to question my motives, or his judgment of my character and motives. After all, if being buffaloed by talking to me and my best friends doesn't make somebody an expert judge of my character, what does?
