I'll show you what one screwball can do!

I wrote a letter! Not an email, mind you. A letter. With a stamp and everything. To whom did I write this letter, you may ask? To one Brian L. Roberts, CEO of Comcast, new owner of NBC, to complain about the shitty treatment of one Conan O'Brien. While I was strongly pulled in the direction of including the phrase "Fuck Jay Leno in the ass with a rake!" I did not. I actually think I was very grown up about it. I even used proper Business Letter format as I learned in 5th grade. See for yourself. (I have omitted my personal information from the head and signature of the letter for obvious reasons. (yeah I'm talking to you creepy!)

To:
Brian L. Roberts - Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
One Comcast Center
1701 JFK Blvd
Philadelphia, PA 19103

Dear sir,
The way that NBC is treating Conan O'Brien is disgraceful. I enjoy Conan's humor, and I was excited when he was given the Tonight Show. I believe that when I heard the news, my exact remarks were something along the lines of "Wow, maybe I'll actually watch the Tonight Show for the first time ever".
Everyone that I know who like Conan O'Brien is thirty five or under. If I knew anyone who liked Jay Leno, I imagine that they would be much, much older.
Please do not let Jeff Zucker take Conan's time slot away and give it to proven failure Jay Leno.

Thank you for your time,
