Sincere thanks today to the League of Independent Candidates. Your column on today’s Opinion page changed my mind about a few things – I never realized that wackos could write such reasonable response letters. You also got the ‘human and LIC in the headlines just days before I run for A.S President and you guys run for the positions that I will eliminate soon after I establish my monarchy. The publicity from that simple exchange of insults will probably improve all of our poll numbers. I love politics: I call you douchebags, you call me ignorant, and now we’re best of friends.

Thursday’s forecast: Speaking of monarchies, did anyone else watch yesterday’s Laker game and get the impression that Kobe is ordained to rule by God?
