Well played. I particularly liked the way he italicized the first letter of each paragraph to spell out his message. (I once did something similar with regard to a girl I went out with who had six letters in her first name, six letters in her middle name, and six letters in her last name; I wrote a poem in three stanzas with six lines per stanza and started each line with a letter of her name, so that it spelled out her name down the left-hand side of the page. I should've noticed the significance of her having six letters in each of her three names, but I didn't recognize it until it was too late.) But I digress. Good stuff from David Hale. Go 'Dawgs!
