I am so embarrassed to be late this morning, Allan, but not totally my fault. Look at your headline again, and you’ll see “on day” could have been interpreted as today — not some day in the future. I just got back from driving through the neighborhood and our historic downtown with horn blaring, lights flashing, screaming out the window, waving my Angry Orchard Apple Cider out the sunroof, wondering where everybody was.

I got pulled over by the local police and showed the officer your article, which actually saved me from going to jail. While he was not impressed by my reading skills, he was more than sympathetic to the cause and effect. After telling me he didn’t want to be associated with Trump or Arpaio, he let me off with only a warning — then he left with a bottle of cider that he said would be saved for the real day of Trump’s resignation!

In the future, please review your headlines for possible misinterpretation that could lead to an embarrassing episode for a reader. Now if Joey will stop saying, “Silly Grandpa!”
