What Sen. Russell Is Really Trying to Say

Dear Source:
Please allow me, respectfully, to comment on Mr. Russell's response to Bonny Corbeil.
I understand that Mrs. Corbeil laughed so hard when she read it that she had to seek medical attention. She is presently out of danger and was last seen looking for the spaceship that allegedly brought Mr. Russell to the Virgin Islands.
I, of course, am completely neutral in this debate, so here is what I think Mr. Russell is really trying to say:
I am a good guy, and I spend 24/7 thinking of ways I can improve the livelihood and quality of life of everyone who believes the words that keeps coming out of my mouth.
So when I found out, that Mr. Morgan might not be in compliance with an FCC rule I immediately pulled out my wallet and passed the hat around amongst my fellow senators so we could send about $80,000.00 up to some Washington D.C. lawyers so we could get an answer to this very important question.
We did this because we are good guys; certainly not because the audience of Mr. Morgan's talk show make us look like fools trying to take our fellow Virgin Islanders for a ride.
And look! There is really nothing wrong with calling someone a member of KKK.
It is quite obvious, that anybody who is against my $20,000.00 pay raise and my enormous pension must be a Clan member.
And if you have another explanation, please call my Saturday talk show and I'll almost certainly not hang up on you, unless you start asking questions.
I know that there are some people who have actually read the stuff I filed with FCC, and if you see all this talk about overthrowing the Government, causing political instability, divisiveness, racial overtones, disrespect and denying me opportunities to speak on Mr. Morgan's show, please! All that really does not mean anything:
I am only concerned with rules and regulations and I'm willing to come up with a lot more money to make sure justice is served before the next election.
Thank you for reading all this, and now, let me get back to my space ship before Mrs. Corbeil gets there first.
