To Ambassador Dan Rooney,
Your predecessor snubbed me annually, so I'm getting my yearly plea in early. How about you, me, a turkey leg or two and a few beers as we watch football next Thanksgiving in your new house? I don't even mind if you have a few others over. I'm not selfish.
I will tell you this about the recently departed Mr. Foley, however. He seems to have done a great job and a great service to you, Ambassador Rooney, with his efforts at redecorating the place if the NY Times is to be believed. Still, what good was all that redecorating if I never got to see the house?
I eagerly await your reply.
