No really, look, this letter addressed to "Sara Mirk, The Jerk" arrived yesterday.
So, what is it the human race wants to say? The envelope contained a one-page letter, folded three times, with a sploch of mud at the top. The letter is just typed out links and chunks of various news articles relating to marijuana, including: a couple paragraphs about Measure 74, a 1997 Oregonian piece about then-governor Kitzhaber signing off on state legislation that briefly recriminalized small amounts of marijuana, a few sentences from a January 2010 Salem News.com post about Bill Bradbury supporting industrial hemp, and several other sections of articles about Kitz opposing legalization.
Given these puzzle pieces, I think we can deduce three things: the human race is mad at John Kitzhaber, the human race is maybe mad at us for not endorsing Measure 74, and the human race is stoned off its ass.
