Hey, you need to fix the link. Add an "h" to the beginning.

Schmader, I'm so glad I have you.

Letters to David
A long time ago you stopped doing Last Days for a while and I was scared and confused. PHEW! You are still making me smile not only on the weekly but on the DAILY now, thank you Slog!

The reply letter from ET posted in the comments is the best:

E.T. says:

Thanks to everyone who has written to me over the years. I apologize for the tardiness of this reponse. We have lots of plants to collect up here in space, and then we're always having to head back to the last planet to pick up any of us who got left behind. Remember all the rigamarole I went through trying to get back home? That was just hazing. They were messing with me, you guys.

I mean, think about it. We land, we get chased off, I don't make it back. You think nobody noticed? You think there's not a headcount? In a spacheship like that, any shift in biomass results in the engineers having to recalculate everyting. They knew, guys. Believe me!

Anyway, big ups to all my shortiez. Thanks for the love and always remember that I'm bringing it back to you cosmic style. You ever need a magic glowy finger on you, you just rig up a Speak and Spell and holla.

Be Good,

If you see Henry Thomas ask him why he's nowhere to be found while that little punk from "Empire of the Sun" is suddenly mother-beating Batman.

Dear E.T.'s Finger,

Please don't glow at me, or I'll die.
