Yesterday I wrote an Urban Semiotic article called — Abandoning Kitchen Door Values — and after our fine discussion about how the decay of duty and the ravages of modern architecture have helped change community morality in the United States, I began to wonder back to Nebraska from New Jersey.
I realized there is one man who can restore our now unfamiliar Kitchen Door Values as our next president and that person is current Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel.
I attended his Senate website yesterday and sent him the following note. For publication of that note here, I added the image of Senator Hagel and I made true hotlinks out of the raw HTML:
Dear Senator Hagel —
I am a Nebraska boy living in New Jersey and I am inspired by the possibility of your run for the presidency of the United States. You and I are on opposite sides of the social issues provoking the current political debate, but on the matter of the War you are on the side of the Right and the Righteous and it is my belief you are the only presidential hopeful who has the authenticity and the experience to put an end to a jiggered up warpath that is dissolving this country’s values from the inside out.
I write a blog called “Urban Semiotic” and today I wrote a piece that reminded me of what matters most in America today, but is missing. The title of the piece is “Abandoning Kitchen Door Values.” As a fellow Nebraskan, I’m sure you understand the architectural morality I describe in my article when I think back to the prairie days on the plains. If you run for president, I hope you run on the idea of a Return to Kitchen Door Values. Here’s another reminder of Nebraska you might appreciate called “Monarch of the Plains” celebrating our tethering to the sky and the then land. My biography is here.
I wish you all the best and I hope Monday will bring the world the great good news that you plan to be our next president. If you run, you will have my full and unbridled support — whether you wish for it or not!
David W. Boles
If Senator Hagel’s office responds, I’ll be sure to let you know. If you’d like to send Chuck Hagel an email, I encourage you to visit his Senate Website Contact Form.
