Dead (Celebrity) Letter Office

A while back, Myles posted an open letter to Saint Augustine of Hippo. While Myles' intent was serious, and part of a theme of his posts of late, it did make me think. Writing letters to people from the past? That's kind of a cool idea.

So, this is the beginning of a new segment here on PBB: the Dead Letter Office! You will send in your letters to famous dead people. Could be anything: a fan letter, criticism, suggestions for the "future." I'll use my Mystical Wayback Machine to go back into the past and make the delivery. Who knows, you may even get a response from a dead celebrity printed here from time to time!

Who can you write to? Pretty much anyone. Could be a pop culture icon, famous artist, politician, philosopher, warrior, or spiritual leader. Doesn't have to be a Biblical personage, but it can be (though they're harder to track down).

So write your letters. You can be as positive or negative as you wish. You can ask that question that you've been dying to know the answer to.

Did Einstein wear boxers or briefs? Did Alexander the Great like the color green? What was Elvis' favorite nursery rhyme?

There's only one way to find out--the PBB Dead Letter Office!

Direct all "Dead Letter" correspondence to "pbbdeadletters-at-hotmail-dot-com."
