Please Mr. Obama, Can I Have A Raise?

Date: April 2, 2009

To: The Chief Executive Officer of the Government Motors Corporation (GM) and the current resident of the White House.

Dear Mr. Obama:

I am the CEO and president of a small corporation located in the southern region of the Socialist Republic of California. Last month at a board meeting, one of the directors suggested that it was time for me to get a salary increase. I expressed my appreciation for their thoughtfulness but prevented the action from moving forward because I did not think it was timely. Besides, I have some questions that need to be answered before my board entertains that idea.

So, Mr. Obama, here are the questions. Will you be replacing me anytime soon? If not, is it O.K. with you if my board gives me a salary increase and, if so, how much? Please let me know A.S.A.P. Your quick response will be appreciated.

Thank you,

Ralph M. Petersen

Well, actually Ralph, Obama will probably have to check in with the union bosses and then get back to you.
