MY 74th LETTER TO THE PRESIDENT. I have written and posted my 74th letter to President George W. Bush. I started this project on January 20, 2001, the day of Mr. Bush's first Inauguration. My intent was to write him a letter a week, but I faded from that intensity for a number of reasons. I still write to him and post all the letters, but less frequently. It seemed appropriate to write to Mr. Bush on the day of his second Inauguration.
