It’s always a little scary when you go to the mailbox and pull out an official-looking government envelope that is addressed to you. Not that I have anything to hide… but I guess I’ve seen so many science fiction movies that my imagination goes a little wild. I received an official government envelope the other day at my house and I am happy to report that the letter did not involve a summons to report to Area 51 for a top-secret experimental human trial. Whew.
No, the letter was actually from North Carolina Senator Kay Hagan. Apparently she must have seen the recent article in The Washington Post, which featured SignUpGenius and talked about how it can be used to plan meals for people in need. Her letter read:
Dear Mr. Rutledge,I am going to keep this letter and if the government ever does try to lock me away and run experiments on my brain, I will definitely contact Kay Hagan for assistance.

Anyways, I gotta get going... there's already an unmarked white van parked outside the office. I may have said to much...
