Memo to Mr. President: Serve Sky Mountain Porter and read a Ray Bradbury short story

To: President Barack Obama
From: Paul
Date: July 26, 2009
Re: RaceFail 2009

Mr. President, just a couple of suggestions with respect to your forthcoming RaceFail 2009 meeting with African-American scholar and Harvard University Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and Cambridge Police Dept. officer Sergeant James Crowley.

First, please consider serving a few beakers of Sky Mountain Porter, a refreshing beer made on Mars by Sky Mountain Brewery. The hops and barley are grown in “red Mars dust composted with human waste and weeds of Earth” and the label shows “Mons Olympus with its top circled in stars against the black Martian sky, and at its foot a tiny alien ship from Earth on a black lava plain.”

Second, please consider having Dr. Gates and Sgt. Crowley read aloud a Ray Bradbury short story. I suggest “Way in the Middle of the Air” (1950) or “The Other Foot” (1951), as either will provide for a teachable moment.



P.S. I don’t think you acted stupidly by wearing your “mom jeans” to the All-Star game. What did they expect? Khakis?

Is this for real I mean the letter to Obama? I hope he got it before he head himself in the RaceFail meeting.

You've never toured the brewery? It's the coolest thing, it's located inside a lava tube!
