I’m writing this e-mail with two purposes in mind. As of six months ago I didn’t know who you were. I work as a nuclear engineering intern at a DOE laboratory in the Idaho desert and my office is in the basement of a decommissioned nuclear reactor. Due to the large amounts of structural concrete my office doesn’t get radio reception so I was forced to resort to online radio. This turned out to be fortunate for me as I discovered your radio show along with your friend Shawn Hannity. I have enjoyed your show so much that I listen to it as I work and listen to the shows I miss on my ipod as I commute 2 hours each day that I work. I have wanted to call in several times, however it is against policy to make phone calls of that nature from a government facility. I find your discussions to be informative and entertaining. One of the points I wanted to make is if you would like information concerning nuclear power, as I know it is sometimes a talking point, I would like to help in any way possible.

The second reason for me writing is to tell you of my dog, Kenya. Kenya is a 12 year old golden retriever mix. She is my parents dog that I grew up with. She is so old now that she has difficulty getting into the car, climbing on my parents bed, or getting onto the couch. My family is a huge family of dog lovers, and the only reason I don’t have a dog currently is because I’m not allowed to have one in the apartment that I live in while I finish college. Sometimes I house sit and dog sit for my parents and I recall all the good times I had with my dog Kenya. She is still referred to by me, my mother, and my brother as “the baby” of the family. I recall her being so loving in some of the darkest and loneliest times in my life. Animals truly are gifts from God for mankinds benefit. I teach my 1 year old child to be nice to animals and to love them. I think there is much that humans have to learn from animals. On another note I have listened to you, Shawn, and other listeners talk of your book about Sprite and have decided that it would make a good gift for my mother for Christmas. Both my mother and I have read the book “Where the Red Fern Grows”, and both of us cried as we read it. I would like to come to your book signing but can’t because I live in Idaho, however I would like to know if there is someone I could pay you for a copy, have you sign it, and then send it to me. I would greatly appreciate any help you could offer with this.
