United States of America

President George W Bush of the United States of America became the 43rd world leader to respond to my request.

The enclosed letter was printed on White House stationary of high grade 100% cotton paper. Overall, it's message conveyed a feeling of warmth and blessing and ended with best wishes from both the President and the First Lady.

Many will notice, that of all the letters I sent out across the world, the one sent to President Bush certainly traveled the least distance. After all, Washington is a mere 230 miles from Brooklyn, New York. However, despite the fact that the letters were mailed out a little under two months ago, due to stringent screening and security procedures, "items sent to the White House often experience a significant delivery delay."

Isn't it ironic that the letter that traveled the least most likely took the longest time to arrive? Its a new world we live in...

Hey, did you realize that George W. Bush is president #43 -- and he was the 43rd leader to respond? Coincidence? Probably not. He knew his letter could be mailed the fastest, so he waited for the opportune time ;)

I am not sure how many letters the leader of Tonga receives, but I am sure it comes no where near the amount of communication the White House receives on a daily basis. Given the this fact, a 2 month wait doesn't seem that long given the priority of the request. It took a California governor over 4 months to respond to me.

I was going to mention the 43 president thing as well but agent220 beat me to it.

You have a really good collection going and it is cool that you are sharing this with us. Very interesting posts!!
