Dear Alexander,

Just wanted to write an extremely belated thank you.


Not only did your research into hearing devices lead to the invention of the telephone...


but you were also one of the founding members of the National Geographic Society.


Either one of those alone would have been enough for my gratitude, but both? That makes you extra cool. You not only made instant communication possible over vast distances, but National Geographic has provided millions of people with inspiration, education, and truly amazing photography, films, and articles over many, many years. Plus you have awesome hair.

So, thanks. I know it wasn't for me, but I benefit from your hard work every day of my life.

The most recent issue of National Geographic has an article about light pollution - with a 2 page picture of the Bountiful temple at night.

Next summer I'm going to subscribe to National Geographic. I always thought it was more expensive than it is.
On their website they have an introductory subscription offer for $15. But it would be silly for me to subscribe now...

Thanks, indeed! Maybe we could send him a text or something....
