The Return Of Sputnik | A Letter To Mr. Putin

The Return Of Sputnik

Dear Vladimir Putin,

As you know, I am a double agent. (An international diplomat since 5 years old.) Therefore, it is at times important that I not divulge all information to either side fearing that it might compromise my cover as I seek bigger fish to fry. There have been Snafus along the way in my mission. For instance, an apparatchik named “Tommy Battle” has become mayor of the village called “Huntsville” where I reside underground, and he is more fond of entertainment than affecting serious reformation, therefore rendering only limited cooperation with his regime.

I have been briefed on nearly a daily basis in regard to Edward Snowden’s situation with Granma, and have requested on my Facebook page that Mr. Raul let Mr. Snowden have Safe Transit Passage through Havana on his was to asylum in Venezuela. His brother, Fidel, once offered me asylum in Cuba as a favor to personal friend Ernst Hemmingway, and I am cashing that offer on Behalf of Mr. Snowden.

In the meantime, I call your attention to the photograph above. One of my duties as a double agent is to maintain visual surveillance on certain tribal provinces in Huntsville. While making observations recently I found what I believe to be your missing Sputnik. I left the area to contact authorities, however, on my return to claim the object, it had gone missing.

My apologies. It was my intention to have it returned, as a gift of sorts. So, again, as I am a double agent, Mr. Obama and his State Department do not often communicate their intentions with me directly, passing instructions instead through sometimes unreliable third party sources. In that light, it is my belief that the American President may have intended that Mr. Snowden be your Christmas gift in lieu of the unreturned Sputnik, which I believe may be in the hands of his underworld consorts.

I should also mention, that also in that tribal province, many residents have made considerable efforts to protect their privacy, perhaps as a result of the American NSA problem. Although an area of modest means, and so not many backyard swimming pools, quite a few privacy fences have been erected in the neighborhood.

Today, I have also been briefed that the young and impetuous North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, has made an unsuccessful attempt to smuggle unauthorized missiles through the Panama canal. Even though I am double agent, I think you understand from our prior experiences that bringing unfriendly missiles into this hemisphere is a bit sensitive and not considered to be good decorum. You might wish to offer him some friendly advisement.

So, in the best spirit of perestroika and glasnost, let me again apologize for this international incident. And perhaps for your birthday party I can convince Barack Obama to send a really nice red sports car for you to drive, and a case of Fresca to mix with your finest Russian Vodka! (You can invite some beautiful Russian dancing girls!) We will then offer a toast, to include the North Korean leader, and others.

“Have a Fresca and a smile!”

    The Homeless War – In Your Own Backyard

    The west coast sweep, apparently a well orchestrated and illegal conspiracy by those municipalities, appeared to begin in Seattle, Washington when a large encampment under a six mile expanse of elevated interstate was targeted and cleared out on the mayor’s order. One report suggested that as many as 5000 people were affected beginning in a camp where two people were killed on the same evening of the mayor’s announcement. Seattle is the city that actually budgeted to provide tickets out-of-town, based on unverifiable and arbitrary criteria.

    Mike Hubbard And The Precocious Alabama Good Ole Boys

    I figured good riddance and calculated what I thought might be a good sentence for the good ole boy. If he got the maximum of 20 years on each count, served consecutively, Mr. Hubbard would go to jail for 240 years – essentially a life sentence.

    Huntsville’s Ferguson Protesters: Jail The Killer Cop!

    Protesters gathered on Huntsville’s East Side Square in front of the Madison County Courthouse at 5p.m. this evening. Organized by Uhuru, according to, the crowd of about 50 peaceful protesters chanted “Jail the killer cop” and “This is what resistance looks like.”

    Bane Romney Who?

    As predicted, not another word about Mitt Romney’s association to the Batman Hollywood “Bane” conspiracy and James Holmes and the Aurora massacre. Romney deftly changed focus by insulting the British in regard to Olympic preparedness. The obedient media dutifully followed. The power of money unseen. And, once again, the white elephant is silently highlighted by […]

    Belabored Move Of DRM A Warning Sign

    The impending move of the Downtown Rescue Mission has sparked a mean spirited and hate filled public debate. Some people apparently believe that some other people are less than human and must be relegated to an official caste without basic human rights, less dignity that a dirty wet dog, and nothing more nutritional to eat than “scooby snacks.”

    45 Years Houston, Or Is It Capricorn One?

    Today is the 45th anniversary of the moon landing. It is really hard to believe. It’s actually harder to believe that it has been 15 years since I took the photo above at the 30th anniverssary. I am one of those just barely old enough to remember my dad sitting me down in front of the TV set, both for the rocket launch and the moon landing, and told to watch because it was important.
