Letters from Billy
So this guy posed as a 10-year-old named Billy and sent letters to all these famous people, and they wrote back, including Charles Manson and Ted Kaczynski. Eeeenteresting. And, like, wow, Charles Manson really is nuts.
The letter that prompted me to post this was the one to/from Larry Flynt.
Billy writes that he wants a subscription to Hustler
but that his parents said has to wait until he's 18. He writes to Mr. Flynt to ask if there is a Hustler
for kids that won't make his parents angry. Larry Flynt writes back: "Your parents are right... you'll be 18 before you know it. Until then, you should read the Sears & Roebuck catalog." Ha!
Anyway, the very amusing story can be found here
