An Olympic Whackjob

Right before the Olympics, I e-mailed the author of my favorite Olympic reference book.  On Sunday I got this response:
Dear Jill,
Thank you for your interest. In the unlikely event that my nephew and I can't handle the books alone, I will keep you in mind. Good luck in your ventures.
David Wallechinsky
Yesterday I talked about e-mail vs. snail mail.  You know what else is rough about e-mail?  Seeing your original message in black and white.  What at first seemed funny/goofy/clever suddenly takes on a "NUTJOB!" tone.  So much so that I'm surprised Mr. Wallechinsky was kind enough to reply.

Needless to say, I won't be hitting the reply button on this one.
