Toady's attention has been drawn to a document scurrilously circulating in Washington during the recent election. Addressed to ex-President Reagan's assassin manque, John Hinkley, it reads: "Dear John, Barbara and I hope you are making good progress in your recovery from the mental problem that prompted you to attempt the assassination of my predecessor, President Reagan. We are delighted to hear from the staff at St Elizabeth's that you are doing well and may be released soon.

As you know, I have decided to seek a second term of office and hope we can count on your support, and the support of your fine Republican parents, in my re-election. John, I hold no grudge against you; and if there is anything you need at the hospital, please let Barbara or me know.

By the way, did you hear that Bill Clinton is ****ing Jodie Foster?

Sincerely, George Bush, President."
