Ruth: I’m really glad you’re getting so much support from the public. Look at all of these bags of Fan mail.
Carl: Only about half of that is fan mail. The rest is Hate mail.
Ruth: Hate mail? Who would send you hate mail?
Carl: Lots of people. People who are Disgruntled write to me about their Grievances.
Carl: Don’t look so surprised. We’ve gotten Bomb threats, and I’ve even received a few Death threats.
Ruth: Death threats?! Aren’t you worried about your Personal safety?
Carl: Not really. Most people are just Venting and others are trying To intimidate me. I’m not going to buckle under just because I get a few letters.
Ruth: But it only takes one Mentally unbalanced person To carry through on threats. Have you considered getting a Bodyguard?
Carl: No, I don’t need any Protection. I just need to keep Plugging away and getting things done.
Ruth: I finally know what to get you for your birthday.
Ruth: A Bulletproof vest.
