Andrew: You got me.
I am sure that during this recent unpleasantness over there, you have been as worried about Melissa as I have (and as the reader who alerted me to her).
I suggest we form a Melissa squad along the lines of the one Ross Perot wanted to send into Tehran during the hostage crisis. Then, if anything were to befall the fair Melissa, we could spring into action, head over there and rescue her. I imagine we would earn Melissa’s undying gratitude. Whaddya say?
