The 102 letter: “skin in the game”

Dear Governor Haslam:

This is my 102nd letter to you.

About skin in the game.

I am 62 years old and have worked my entire life.  It is September 4, 2014.  I looked in my wallet a few minutes ago.  I have $23 to live on for the rest of the month.  No more is coming. 

A few days ago I went to the emergency room.  I thought I was having a heart attack.  They thought my gall bladder was going bad and I might need emergency surgery.  Thank God we were both wrong.

The bill will be thousands of dollars I think.  They asked for a deposit when I left.  I took out the 3 pennies in my pocket and asked them which one they wanted.

Governor my skin was long ago gone.

Until tomorrow.

Yours truly,

Larry Drain
