Dear President Obama,
Do you remember me? I’m Rosanne. When Michelle asked us to send you a birthday greeting, I wrote a lovely message in your birthday card. I hope you had a wonderful birthday.
I’m really impressed that you managed to raise one million dollars for the “Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee” from a little party with two hundred people at “West Wing” and “ER” producer John Well’s Los Angeles home last Monday (August 16, 2010).
Congratulations Sir. The November election isn’t far off now, and the Democrats need all the money they can get.
Traffic in L.A. is bad. We who live here know that. But the secret service closed off so many streets on Monday evening, that your little trip from the hotel in Beverly Hills to the party in Hancock Park, ended up being a nightmare for us stuck in our cars going nowhere in the gridlocked streets.
I didn’t work on Monday – lucky me – but I know all about it, because my Mr F was in one of those cars that sat in unmoving traffic for 45 minutes.
As for your departure from L.A, all of us who work in the Museum store were late for work on Tuesday morning. I clocked in at 33 minutes past nine, which meant I was 33 minutes late, which meant half-an-hour off my very modest hourly wage. And oh my god that bumper to bumper slow motion traffic sure eats up gasoline.
Mr President I’d like to ask you a favor. Please sir, next time you come to Los Angeles consider the working people. We’d all appreciate if you didn’t have to travel across our busy streets during *rush hour*. And if you have to arrive in the late afternoon, or leave in the early morning could you possibly fly across town by helicopter?
