A Spammer, Wayne, gets his day in court with John
John spams the spammmers

It is with deep sorrow and broken heart that am sending you this mail. Am in deep need and my situation is lamentable. my family and I decide to come visit Wales,United Kingdom for a short vacation. To our greatest dismay we were attacked and ripped apart at the park of the hotel where we were lodging,all cash,credit cards and mobiles were forcefully robbed off us at gun point but we still have our passports with us.

We’ve seek help at embassy and high commission,the Police too, unfortunately they have been unable to help or offer any reasonable support whatsoever. Our flight leaves in couple of hour from now but we are being held to ransom by the hotel management because we cannot settle the hotel bills. It is clear we would not be allowed to leave until pay the bill. Word cannot explain the anguish in my heart now. I am in need of immediate assistance.

Wayne,

This IS lamentable. Plus you’ll miss the Twins game tonight! (Did you give your tickets to Tony or are they still in play? The Twins rock!  Mauer’s hitting is a little off right now but the paper got it right today:  He’s still the best catcher in baseball.  Mike Lynch says no rain for the game tonight, too.  Go Twins!

Best, John

Wayne,
Exactly. For sure. But you haven’t said what I should do. And no mention of the Twins tickets. I called Tony 5 minutes ago and woke him up. I think he’s pissed.

Right. I’m not sure what 1,280 Pounds comes to in US Dollars, though, are you?

And Dude, the tickets. What about the tickets? I’ve never seen a Twins game from one of those suites.  You see they scored in 6 of their 8 at bats last night?

    My friends got the same email from me …suposedly.. as this person stole my whole address book and sent this email to everyone in it…and I had to reset all my passwords. People I know are starting to call asking how they can help me. One of my friends worked with politicians here in Missouri, and know Sen. Bond…and is willing to contact him to help me out. One of the nuns in my address book is going to pray really hard for me.
    My dtr in law got one…from me today and on Monday from the same place from someone at her work. I wonder if that persons address book was totally stolen like mine was…

    Hey John, just read a report that the reason that Cutler was removed from the game was a diabetic incident( and he is a diabetic), not necessarily a knee injury. This report may or may not have been true. Of course, if you had investigated thoroughly, you might have picked that up. Instead, you assumed that he was faking an knee injury and pulled himself out of the game; let his team down and was only thinking of himself – you know, “not standing and cheering his team on”. One would think that before a professional, such as yourself, makes a statement as negative as yours, he/she would do a little leg work first. Yet another example of a reporter, commentator, radio host that fires from the hip with unsustantiated information; makes a damning remark, and then sits back and asks for opinions. Of course, that may be your only job; to get people to listen and then to jump in with an opinion. If that’s all you get paid for – well played, Williams. You’d think you would be more responsible and professional than that. The media is full of people like you. That’s unfortunate.
    I thought you might be different.

    John,
    Appreciate your topic. One point. If you look at the trend of incomes, the middle class is shrinking, the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, then looking down the road who pays the bills? The programs tend to help people with less income.
    It is also more common for people with more means to afford to find ways to pay less percentage per income than those with less.
    I don’t agree that upper middle class should be hit hard, so maybe the brackets should be different, but I see a spiral effect occuring here over many years into the future if we don’t change the way things things are done now.
    Just my two cents. Thanks!
