An Open Letter to the Media

Dear Media,

As you've been breathlessly reporting all morning, according to her attorney, Miss New Jersey, Amy Polumbo, has received a second threatening package from someone trying to blackmail her into relinquishing her crown.

While I can understand why a sensationalistic story such as this might take precedence over the White House denial of reports of internal debate amongst it's officials regarding a gradual pullback of troops in Iraq; or the dozen wildfires blazing throughout the western United States; or even the upcoming release of the Harry Potter book and movie, I also want to caution you not to lose sight of the real tragedy here.

That some poor woman out there actually has to represent the state of New Jersey.

Your Friend,

Joe
