Stealing Ian's mail


Why did I steal Ian's mail from the Purple House on a hot summer day in late August? Who were my co-conspirators? What was the angle? I have no idea, but here's the evidence. If his Newsweek subscription ran out as a result, and he spent the next few years much less informed about current events than he would have been otherwise, I take full responsibility. Sorry, Ian!
