THE YOU-ME RICHARD GERE OF PRETENDING

Dear Mr. Richard Gere,

In Mom's underwear drawer--as I was separating her "personal" clothes from the "lightly used" articles I could donate to the local thrift shop--I found a letter you wrote.

As you will recall, your letter was about the 2008 Olympics held in Beijing, China--you were advocating for a boycott because of the crimes and atrocities the Chinese government commented against Tibet.

Don't worry.

I'm not one of those "crazy types."
