Letters To Evil

Hi. I was out running some errands earlier and I walked past a bookseller on the street. I thought I saw a book called by Henry James (pictured above) called "A Letter to Evil." I have been unable to locate any such book on Amazon, but I was struck by the title because I myself have written many letters to Evil. I thought this would be a good time to share some of these letters...

Dear Evil,

I am very upset with you because today I went to Supercuts and got a HORRIBLE haircut. It looks like someone took one of the those mini personal fans, attached a metal blade, and moved it across the top of my head with impunity. I am very mad about that.

Dear Evil,

I am so mad because I tried on a pair of pants at the store, they looked nice, but when I took them home they looked horrible. That's it.

Dear Evil,

I am just a little bored so I thought I would write. What's up?

Dear Evil,

Do you like Papa John's or Pizza Hut better? Please provide a detailed explanation.

Anyway, I've written dozens of these letters, and every now and then I'll get a response. Here's one...

Dear William,

You really need to find better things to do with your time.
