Jim Butcher an up and coming world class writer

 Mr. Butcher

 Although I usually limit my occasional post to political subjects, I feel compelled to write you.

 I have read your entire series of Dresden File books, your blog etc…. I have watched every episode of your TV series and when ever some one mentions writing a book I recommend your posts on the subject.

 I also read the acknowledgements, author’s notes and cover flaps.
 I literally read your books from cover to cover.

 I have an issue; Changes was a cliff hanger and if you do an internet search on the subject; a lot of people agree with me.
 Although I enjoyed Side Jobs, the way it was marketed gave the impression it was need to bridge from Changes to Ghost Story.

 It made me wonder if someone needed to make a yacht payment.

 Last but not least, I understand that you do not to read ideas from fans, but you could at least allow readers to suggest two words twice a year. 
  I have written other authors and some responded and some did not, but none have or had a policy of not reading over anything a fan wrote.
 My two words are: Leprechaun and Dragon.

 Keep in mind, I don’t even up date my blog very often and I left your last book Ghost Story next to my computer for a long time before I decided to write (I do not find writing easy to do), I am getting to the age that it is a real possibility I could die with out ever saying what was on my mind.
 So I am going to say it, whether it’s Jim Butchers policies(?) are sanctimonious, President Obama is a closet Socialist or Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum is too preachy for me.

 Thank you for your time.

I.B.E.W. 357 :Letter

April 6, 2010

Mr. Edwin (Ed) D. Hill

As the writer of the Twistedway Blog, I was visiting you website, I found it to be well organized and limited to the issues of your union.
Then I went to the I.B.E.W. 357, web site, it is different, in fact it states:

“Declaration of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers
"Our cause is the cause of human justice, human rights, human security. We refuse, and will always refuse, to condone or tolerate dictatorship or oppression of any kind.
We will find and expel from our midst any who might attempt to destroy, by subversion, all that we stand for.
This Brotherhood will continue to oppose communism, Nazism or any other subversive "ism". We will support our God, our Nations, our Union."

This is fine but in light of the locals, actions regarding the Tea Party Protesters on the 27th of March 2010.

The local seems to be studying Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals, whose book could be summarized as: The main job of the organizer is to bait an opponent into reacting. “The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength.”

The Unions seem from my prospective to be doing the same things they accuse corporations of doing. By this I mean; the actions of the unions to support the health care law that give better deals to union members than the same deals offered to the general public, basically the unions appear to be willing to stick it to there neighbors in order to receive a better deal.

Please understand I have no issues with any union supporting there own political issues in there field, but the local 357 went over the line.

What are you planning on doing about this and how far is too far?

Thank you for your time.
