Sam, The day Pres Reagan was shot I was right there and your face was the last thing I remember seeing before the guns went off. I thought I heard also that some iron workers wete talked to, something about some shells being found below them. I know you were by that rock roll. I would like to hear from you if possible and all this can be verified with FBI. I was there with the Business Agent from the local Roofers Union and who when the shots went off and I got knocked down my boyfriend ran inside and left me outside where a stranger picked me off the ground and brought me into the Hotel where my guy was. All the other union men that were there knew I was outside and came to make sure I was ok. Please sir, I really would appreciate a note or something like a picture from you. God Bless and thank you,

Well I was going to write about what a liberal Donaldson is but those who want to know know already and those who don`t could care less. I don`t watch any of the big 3 net works news shows as they are all geared up to the liberals of America so I haven`t see or thought of Donaldson in years. Fox is where the real Fair and Balanced news is and if you disagree then your a liberal also and follow every lie the net works feed you. As far Donaldson, well his wig is pretty bad isn`t it. Wonder how he keeps it on?
