Dear Tom and Ray,

Recently, my wife and I took a trip to the Smithsonian Museum of American History in Washington DC. It was a lovely day for a trip to the Mall, and consequently the museum was very crowded. We managed to elbow our way into the Transportation exhibit, where we were surprised to find a kiosk where we could play recordings from your program. My wife and I are both big fans, so we stopped to play them all, and when we were done, we were surprised to note that, crowded as the museum was, we now had the entire room to ourselves.

This experience gave me an idea, and now, whenever I have to make my way down a crowded sidewalk or through a busy store, I carry a recording of one of your shows. I simply play it and people give me a wide berth.

Thanks for the elbow room!
