An Unanswered Letter to Mayor Mike Lester

Dear Mayor Mike Lester,

I don’t expect you to listen to me. Guys like you never listen to guys like me, then you end up looking stupid and I get to say, “I told you so,” but unless you allow Christie Carr to keep her therapy kangaroo you are going to look like a heartless ass to the entire world. My advice is to back away slowly and turn this public relations fiasco around by declaring April 23rd to be “Irwin the Kangaroo” day in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. Anything less is probably going to end with me saying, “I told you so.”

You did catch the part about Christie Carr taking care of a helpless, mostly paralyzed and brain damaged kangaroo, that can’t survive on its own, dressing it up in cute little outfits, and taking it to visit the elderly, right? And the part about how the kangaroo is named after internationally beloved (and recently deceased) wildlife expert Steve Irwin, right? Anything other than overwhelming support of this woman—and her kangaroo companion—will be like coming out against unicorns while kicking a baby in the face. I advise against this course of action as well, but if you insist on kicking a baby in the face I will be ready with my “I told you so.” You’re not anti-unicorn and pro-baby face kicking are you?

Like I said, you won’t listen to me, so I’ll be writing back.

p.s. If you push “Irwin the Kangaroo” day back to July or August people might actually have a reason to visit Oklahoma in the summer!
