Dear Lorne,

The previous press release made me sound like a nutcase. Perhaps this one may be more  up to date regarding my present state of mind, which can change by the minute.

In our not so distant virtual future, when we are all plugged into some gadget to simulate stimulation of our long since jaded senses, it may be possible, if not required, to bite a chunk off of the viewers ear, or set their hair on fire, or ignite pyrotechnics in order to get the spectators attention. Reading actual text will have gone the way of the abacus or slide rule.

Last month I started sending letters to Lorne Michaels, founder of the TV show Saturday Night Live,
http://www.nbc.com/Saturday_Night_Live/         http://snltranscripts.jt.org/77/77fmono.phtml where thirty years earlier I had appeared as the runner up in the Anyone Can Host contest. Recently he was kind enough to let me know that the letters were getting through to him. While this may be the last I ever hear from the show, the letters have evolved into a something much larger.

I am not a writer by profession and generally clueless when it comes to dealing with the press establishment. All I really have is the belief that what I have started is going somewhere, maybe nowhere, yet would be of interest to your readers. So I am sending you this email in the hope that it will be forwarded to the individual who can take the time to go to my website,  http://dwdiamond.com/, 
read some of the letters that have already been sent then posted, then if your publication wants to be part of this event as it unfolds.

This is happening in real time. with new letters added almost every other day. Your participation could play a key role. The questions asked attempt to shed the veil of how our perceptions are manipulated. This may not suit the agenda of most publications. Yet there must be someone out there that can recognize the train coming in time to ride the locomotive, rather than to wait until later to latch onto the caboose.

Thank you  for having read this far. Please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience.

Respectfully yours,
