Finally, it arrived.  Although, I think it was just bulk mail he sent to every admirer.  Somehow, his light heartedness seems fake and forced.  Here is the love letter.

what George isn’t doing

He’s not on TV or radio talking or being seen with ordinary Canadians. He’s not part of creating a new independent FM. He’s not producing any documentaries or even fun shows. He’s not taking us anywhere. He’s not being funny, ever. He’s not writing a blog or his own lines on The Hour. He’s unable […]

During your interviews, George, do you ever get a Stromboner?

PoonGirl has it in her head to interview Stroumbo. I don’t know what she wants to ask him, but I’m sure the result would be interesting. I also don’t think it’s likely to happen.
