The Pardon of I\ixon Ended the Honeymoon For President Ford
By Art Bucwahdl Buchwald
By the time you find this note I will be gone. I don’t knov how to tell you this, but the honeymoon is over. I guess should have known it wouldn’t last forever, but I didn’t think i would end so soon.
How could you do it, Gerry? I believed everything you toll me. We were so happy together, and I was so proud when peo pie would point us out and giggle. “They’re on their honeymoon."
What a glorious month we had As far as I was concerned, you could do no wrong. I hung onto every word you said
I said to myself you were special. You knew nght from wrong, and you would never be swayed by a lot of rhetoric and double talk Gerry, you promised me you wouldn't do anything until justice took its course
Oh, Gerry, what made you change your *ucmwald mind'’ What happened to all those dreams you had for us?
I know you tried to explain it to me You said you had to foi give you-know-who' as an act of compassion because he ha suffers enough But he hasn’t suffered half as much as w have. Gerry We ll never know all the things he did to us. Eve
now he refuses to admit that he did anything wrong. He keep
talking about mistakes in judgment. They weren't mistakes I judgment, and you know it They were criminal acts and yo had no right to forgive him before we knew what they were
Sunday, after you told me what you were going to do. decided to go see Eve I Kmevel jump over the Snake River his steam rocket I thought this would make me forget
But then as the rocket filled with hot air and the steam bul up and the vehicle starts! lifting off the ramp, something hai pened Before it got off, a parachute opened and. instead i streaking out across the canyon, the rocket nose-dived an floated head first, crash-landing on the rocky bank of ti Snake River.
At that moment, (lorry. I broke into tears I wasn’t cry in for Eve! - I was crying for us The rocket more than anythin symiiolized our honeymoon It looked so beautiful on the pa with all that steam coming out of its nozzles, its nose pointe toward the sky as if to say, “Here I come world, ready c not.”
The only trouble, Gerry, with Evel’s rocket and you rocket on Sunday after “you-know-who” is that neither one < them would ever fly. —A B.
P S. Don’t try to find me.
